Crinoids are well known for their striking regenerative potential and can rapidly and completely regenerate arms lost following self-induced or traumatic amputation. Thus they provide a valuable experimental model for investigation of the regenerative process from the macroscopic to the molecular level. In these last years we have studied in detail the overall process of arm regeneration in the comatulid Antedon mediterranea. This phenomenon can be described on the whole as a typical blastemal… CONTINUE READING
