The sea cucumber, Holothuria glaberrima, has the capacity to regenerate its internal organs. Intestinal regeneration is accomplished by the thickening of the mesenteric border and the invasion of this thickening by mucosal epithelium from the esophagus and the cloaca. Extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling has been associated with morphogenetic events during(More)
Determining the type and source of cells involved in regenerative processes has been one of the most important goals of researchers in the field of regeneration biology. We have previously used several cellular markers to characterize the cells involved in the regeneration of the intestine in the sea cucumber Holothuria glaberrima. We have now obtained a(More)
Proteolysis carried out by different proteases control cellular processes during development and regeneration. Here we investigated the function of the proteasome and other proteases in the process of intestinal regeneration using as a model the sea cucumber Holothuria glaberrima. This echinoderm possesses the ability to regenerate its viscera after a(More)
