The robust regenerative ability of planarians depends on a population of somatic stem cells called neoblasts, which are the only mitotic cells in adults and are responsible for blastema formation after amputation. The molecular mechanism underlying neoblast differentiation associated with blastema formation remains unknown. Here, using the planarian Dugesia(More)
To study the transcriptome of embryonic stem cells, we used a new gene expression profiling method that can measure the expression levels of unknown and rarely expressed transcripts precisely. We detected a total of 33,136 signal peaks representing transcripts in mouse embryonic stem cells, E14. Subsequent random cloning of the peaks suggests that mouse(More)
After limb amputation, urodele amphibians can regenerate lost parts perfectly throughout their life. However, Xenopus laevis shows its characteristic limb regenerative ability. Although Xenopus tadpole has the capacity to regenerate their limbs after amputation, after amputation of a froglet (a small frog after metamorphosis) limb, it can regenerate only a(More)
