Abstract Crinoid echinoderms can provide a valuable experimental model for studying all aspects of regenerative processes from molecular to macroscopic level. Recently we carried out a detailed study into the overall process of arm regeneration in the crinoid Antedon mediterranea and provided an interpretation of its basic mechanisms. However, the problem of the subsequent fate of the amputated arm segment (explant) once isolated from the animal body and of its possible regenerative potential… Expand
Echinoderm regeneration: an in vitro approach using the crinoid Antedon mediterranea
TLDR
This represents the first successful attempt to culture cells involved in crinoid regeneration by using an in vitro approach and confirms the diverse cell types contributing to regeneration and underscores their involvement in migration, proliferation, and dedifferentiation processes. Expand
Microscopic overview of crinoid regeneration
TLDR
The overall process of arm regeneration in the comatulid Antedon mediterranea can be described on the whole as a typical blastemal regeneration in which new structures develop from migratory pluripotential, actively proliferating cells in the presence of presumptive regulatory factors. Expand
Visceral regeneration in the crinoid Antedon mediterranea: basic mechanisms, tissues and cells involved in gut regrowth
TLDR
The results confirm the striking potential for repair (wound healing) and regeneration displayed by crinoids at the organ, tissue and cellular levels. Expand
Regeneration in Echinoderms: repair, regrowth, cloning
TLDR
An overview of the current understanding of regeneration in echinoderms is provided and the main biological aspects of regeneration are covered giving an idea of the “state of the art” across the phylum in terms of experimental approaches and representative models. Expand
Regenerating Echinoderms: A Promise to Understand Stem Cells Potential
TLDR
On the basis of their regenerative potential echinoderms can provide a broad range of valuable new deuterostome models for the study of regeneration genetics, with potential applications in vertebrate regeneration. Expand
Regeneration in Stellate Echinoderms: Crinoidea, Asteroidea and Ophiuroidea.
TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of the cellular/histological components of the regenerative process in crinoids, asteroids and ophiuroids is described and compared and further studies are needed specifically to understand the role of regulatory factors and their spatio-temporal deployment in the growing arms. Expand
Intrinsic gene expression during regeneration in arm explants of Amphiura filiformis
TLDR
The results demonstrated an active transcriptome with extensive differential gene expression focused at the original distal part of the arm explant where the regenerating blastema was located and revealed that expression patterns showed subtle differences in the levels of gene expression rather than the presence or absence of certain genes. Expand
Regeneration in Echinoderms and Ascidians
TLDR
The comparison of results derived from different experimental models of echinoderms and ascidians and employing different approaches provides an insight on specificity of regulatory mechanisms and processes governing large-scale pattern formation and information signalling storage between cells and tissues allowing a living system to reliably regenerate and maintain a complex morphology. Expand
Regeneration neurohormones and growth factors in echinoderms
TLDR
Echinoderms are well known for their striking regenerative potential and many can completely regenerate arms that, for example, are lost following self-induced or traumatic amputation, providing a valuable experimental model for the study of regenerative processes from the macroscopic to the molecular level. Expand
PCB exposure and regeneration in crinoids (Echinodermata)
TLDR
The results provide evidence that the regenerative response in the crinoid Antedon mediterranea isially sensitive to PCBs and that exposure to these chemicals induces significant variations in timing and modality of arm regeneration. Expand

Mechanisms of arm regeneration in the feather star Antedon mediterranea: Healing of wound and early stages of development
TLDR
According to the results the regenerative development of Antedon arm seems to consist of an epimorphic process which essentially implies the involvement of proliferating undifferentiated cells. Expand
Tissue distribution of monoamine neurotransmitters in normal and regenerating arms of the feather star Antedon mediterranea
TLDR
Investigation of the specific involvement of neural factors, viz. the monoamine neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin, in arm regeneration of Antedon mediterranea indicates that they are important neural growth-promoting factors in crinoid arm regeneration. Expand
Pattern of cell proliferation in the early stages of arm regeneration in the feather star Antedon mediterranea
TLDR
Arm regeneration in the crinoid echinoderm Antedon mediterranea can provide a very useful model for studying regenerative development and the actively proliferating elements can be identified both close and far from the amputation. Expand
Pattern of bromodeoxyuridine incorporation in the advanced stages of arm regeneration in the feather star Antedon mediterranea
TLDR
Monitoring cell proliferation during the advanced regenerative phase using light-microscopic and ultrastructural immunocytochemical methods to detect the incorporation of the thymidine analogue bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) into regenerating tissues consistent with the following conclusions are consistent.

Regeneration and Morphogenesis in the Feather Star Arm
TLDR
Using histofluorescence and immunohistochemical methods to visualize catecholamines and indolamines, it has been possible to reveal the presence of dopamine and serotonin and follow the fluctuations and the different involvements of these neuro-trasmitters during the regeneration process. Expand
Patterns of bromodeoxyuridine incorporation and neuropeptide immunoreactivity during arm regeneration in the starfish Asterias rubens
TLDR
Differentiation of the regenerating structures to replace cells such as S1–containing neurons, is thought to involve cell cycle activity and differentiation of epithelial cells in the epidermal tissue, possibly in association with certain types of coelomocytes which move into the Regenerating area.

Growth factors in CNS repair and regeneration.

The rapid recent advances that have been made in understanding of the underlying cellular and trophic pathology of traumatic central nervous system injuries offer the potential for development of novel therapies to control scarring, enhance neuron survival and stimulate axon regeneration, thereby promoting functional recovery.

The SALMFamides: a new family of neuropeptides isolated from an echinoderm
TLDR
S1 and S2 are the first neuropeptides identified in species belonging to the phylum Echinodermata, and share minimal sequence identity with members of the family of FMRFamide-like peptides so they are designated as founder members of a new family, the SALMFamides. Expand
Isolation of the neuropeptide SALMFamide-1 from starfish using a new antiserum
TLDR
The sensitivity and specificity of two antisera (BL and SL) for S1 were established by testing the ability of S1 and structurally related peptides (SALMFamide-2 and various FMRFamide-related peptides) to displace iodinated KYSalMFamide from the serum antibodies in an RIA. Expand

Monoclonal antibodies specific for 5-bromodeoxyuridine have been produced and applied in detecting low levels of DNA replication on a cell-by-cell basis in vitro and do not cross-react with thymidine. Expand
