An investigation of cellular and molecular mechanisms of stem cell regulation in Schmidtea mediterranea

Abstract:

The planarian Schmidtea mediterranea discovered by Benazzi, Baguñà, Ballester, Puccinelli & Del Papa, 1975 is a classic model organism for the investigation of regenerative processes. The source of new tissues is a population of proliferative cells called 'neoblasts'. The level of heterogeneity among this population of cells is unknown. However at least a proportion of neoblasts are pluripotent stem cells, and these are sometimes referred to as clonogenic neoblasts (cNeoblasts). Althou...
