  • Hydra has been well known for over 200 years for its remarkable regenerative capacity. In addition to small pieces excised from the body, reaggregates of dissociated single cells can also regenerate. Although the cellular events involved in the regeneration process have been well characterized, the underlying molecular mechanisms are yet to be uncovered. Recently, however, transcription factors and signaling molecules, both proteins and short peptides, have been identified and their role… CONTINUE READING
