SummaryTissue maceration was used to determine the absolute number and the distribution of cell types in Hydra. It was shown that the total number of cells per animal as well as the distribution of cells vary depending on temperature, feeding conditions, and state of growth. During head and foot regeneration and during budding the first detectable change in the cell distribution is an increase in the number of nerve cells at the site of morphogenesis. These results and the finding that nerve… Expand

Topics from this paper

The role of nerve cell density in the regulation of bud production in hydra
TLDR
The distribution of cell types was examined in animals with different rates of bud production, and the density of nerve cells in those animals was found to be correlated with their rate of Bud production, suggesting that the densityof nerve cells may play a role in regulating the rate of budProduction in hydra.

Size, shape and orientation of cells in budding hydra and regulation of regeneration in cell aggregates
  • L. Graf, A. Gierer
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Wilhelm Roux's archives of developmental biology
  • 2004
TLDR
The process of sorting out and regeneration in aggregates of previously dissociated hydra cells was followed using various ratios of endodermal to ectodermal epithelial cells, where the ratio in the regenerate rapidly approaches 1∶1, the ratio found in normal hydra tissue. Expand
Oriented migration of interstitial cells and nematocytes inHydra attenuata
  • R. Herlands, H. Bode
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Wilhelm Roux' Archiv für Entwicklungsmechanik der Organismen
  • 2004
TLDR
The migratory properties of hydra cells within the tissue were studied and the regeneration of the hypostome and tentacles does not affect cell migration in either direction, except for apical migration of stenotele nematocytes, which was markedly reduced. Expand
Analysis of morphogenetic mutants of hydra
The mutantreg-16 is deficient in head regeneration and abnormal in size regulation. The gastric region becomes twice as long as that of normal animals before the first bud is produced. Both mutantExpand
Stemness in Hydra - a current perspective.
TLDR
It is argued that these three lineages are expected to show substantial variation in their stemness-related gene regulatory networks and Wnt signalling pathways and Myc oncoproteins, which are beginning to offer a perspective on how proliferation and differentiation might be regulated. Expand
A low-molecular weight factor from colonial hydroids affects body proportioning and cell differentiation
Treatment of metamorphosing planulae of Hydractinia echinata with proportion altering factor (PAF) causes oversizing in the hypostome of developing primary polyps. With increasing concentrations moreExpand
Analysis of morphogenetic mutants of hydra
TLDR
Theaberrant is distinct from the wild type in having a smaller head with fewer tentacles and only half the number of head-specific cells and the rate of head and foot regeneration and the doubling time are slower inaberrants than in normal hydra. Expand
Regulation of interstitial cell differentiation inHydra attenuata
TLDR
The results suggest that the type of nematocyte differentiation an i-cells undergoes is influenced by the axial position of the i-cell, which is determined by correcting for tissue displacement. Expand
Interstitial stem cells in Hydra: multipotency and decision-making.
  • C. David
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The International journal of developmental biology
  • 2012
TLDR
Interstitial stem cells in Hydra constitute a population of multipotent cells, which continuously give rise to differentiated products during the growth and budding of Hydra polyps, and wnt and notch signaling are both required for differentiation of committed precursors. Expand
Transplantation analysis of developmental mechanisms in Hydra.
  • H. Shimizu
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The International journal of developmental biology
  • 2012
TLDR
The various strains identified by Sugiyama and colleagues are reviewed, the principles and the main results deduced from the quantitative lateral transplantation strategy are discussed, and the relevance of this approach in the era of molecular biology is discussed. Expand

Tissue dynamics of steady state growth in Hydra littoralis. I. Patterns of cell division.
TLDR
The growth pattern in Hydra littoralis was studied histologically, by methods of mitotic counting and radioautographic analysis of tritiated thymidine incorporation into cell nuclei, and the pattern of mitosis activity is consistent with the tissue movements observed in normal hydra and with the general morphogenetic plasticity which hydra exhibit.
