The regeneration of structures in adult animals depends on a mechanism for coupling the acute response to tissue injury or removal with the local activation of plasticity in residual differentiated cells or stem cells. Many potentially relevant signals are generated after injury, and the nature of this mechanism has not been elucidated for any instance of regeneration. Lens regeneration in adult vertebrates always occurs at the pupillary margin of the dorsal iris, where pigmented epithelial… CONTINUE READING
