Regenerative ability varies depending on animal species and developmental stage, but the factors that determine this variability remain unclear. Although Xenopus laevis tadpole tails possess high regenerative ability, this is transiently lost during the ;refractory period'. Here, we show that tail amputation evokes different immune responses in wound tail stumps between the ;refractory' and ;regeneration' periods: there was delayed or prolonged expression of some immune-related genes in the… CONTINUE READING
