How can a planarian regenerate its entire body from a small portion of its body? Neoblasts, the totipotent stem cells of planarian, are assumed to be able to produce all missing cell types. However, we do not know how the cell fate of these cells is controlled during regeneration. Our recent studies with molecular markers suggest that intercalary regeneration is the fundamental principle in planarian regeneration. Here, we introduce the intercalation induced by ectopic grafting along the… CONTINUE READING
