Xenopus Wnt-5a induces an ectopic larval tail at injured site, suggesting a crucial role for noncanonical Wnt signal in tail regeneration

Abstract

Amputation of the larval tail of Xenopus injures the notochord, spinal cord, muscle masses, mesenchyme, and epidermis, induces the growth and differentiation of cells in those tissues, and results in tail regeneration. A dorsal incision in the larval tail injures the same tissues and induces cell growth and differentiation, but never results in the… (More)
