Xenopus laevis froglet forelimbs normally respond to amputational injury by forming a heteromorphic cartilaginous rod‐shaped outgrowth. However, partial denervation of a forelimb by ablation of the N. radialis or the N. ulnaris, followed in 2 days by amputation through the mid radius‐ulna, results in a size deficiency of the regenerative outgrowth 14 and 21 days postamputation. The decreasing quantity of forelimb innervation, as a result of partial denervation by 55 or 45%, apparently has a… Expand
