The phenomenon of whole body regeneration (WBR) from minute soma fragments is a rare event in chordates, confined to the subfamily of botryllid ascidians and is poorly understood on the cellular and molecular levels. We assembled a list of 1326 ESTs from subtracted mRNA, at early stages of Botrylloides leachi WBR, and classified them into functional categories. Sixty-seven (15%) ESTs with roles in innate immunity signaling were classified into a broad functional group, a result supported by… CONTINUE READING
