Some vertebrate species, including urodele amphibians and teleost fish, have the remarkable ability of regenerating lost body parts. Regeneration studies have been focused on adult tissues, because it is unclear whether or not the repairs of injured tissues during early developmental stages have the same molecular base as that of adult regeneration. Here, we present evidence that a similar cellular and molecular mechanism to adult regeneration operates in the repair process of early zebrafish… CONTINUE READING
