In this report, we present a study of regeneration of the lateral line, a collection of mechano-sensory organ, in the adult zebrafish caudal fin. As all neuromasts are innervated by axon fibers, neuronal regeneration is a key issue in the regenerating process. We first show that support cells from the last neuromast adjacent to the amputation plane divide and migrate to colonize the blastema in order to reform the missing part of the lateral line. We then show that nerve re-growth takes place… CONTINUE READING
