A foot regeneration deficient strain of Hydra oligactis with altered size regulation was investigated. Analysis of the concentration of four morphogenetically active substances in Hydra oligactis showed that the foot regeneration deficiency was mainly due to a drastically reduced foot activator concentration. Foot activator was distributed as a very steep gradient in Hydra oligactis leading to a more severe impairment of foot regeneration the closer to the head cutting was done. The… CONTINUE READING
