Urodeles and Planarians as Models for Studying Regeneration and Cancer. Although many different model animals, developmental stages, and in vitro systems have been utilized to study cancer and regeneration independently, two organisms, the urodele amphibians (including newts and axolotl) and planarians (flatworms), have risen to the forefront for simultaneously exploring malignant Cited by:   Discovered centuries ago, regeneration is a fascinating biological phenomenon that continues to intrigue. The study of regeneration promises to inform how adult tissues heal and rebuild themselves such that this process may someday be stimulated in a clinical setting. Although mammals are limited in their ability to regenerate, closely and distantly related species alike can perform Cited by: Thus, age-related effects on glycemia might contribute to impaired liver regeneration in old animals. Further support for this idea comes from studies implicating Zn-HDACs as mediators of the antiregenerative influence of aging [ ] together with previously mentioned data indicating that metabolism influences Zn-HDAC activity and subcellular.

In biology, regeneration is the process of renewal, restoration, and growth that makes genomes, cells, organisms, and ecosystems resilient to natural fluctuations or events that cause disturbance or damage. Every species is capable of regeneration, from bacteria to humans. Regeneration can either be complete where the new tissue is the same as the lost tissue, or incomplete where after the. Regeneration can happen in many different ways using pluripotent or tissue-specific stem cells. Some regeneration happens without stem cells at all (e.g. the regeneration of Zebra fish hearts) Studying regeneration in other species will help us understand how the human body heals and repairs itself. Regeneration capabilities are found in most or all animals. Whether regeneration is part of the development of an animal or a distinct phenomenon independent of development is a debatable : Michel Vervoort. The best regenerators, however, are not animals, but plants, which regenerate leaves each year and can reconstitute whole plants from cuttings and in some cases, such as the carrot, even from single cells (Birnbaum and Sanchez-Alvarado , Ikeuchi et al , for reviews). Regeneration is intimately related to reproduction.

This chapter discusses several strategies used in the regenerative medicine, such as cell transplantation, bioartificial tissue implants, and chemical induction via regeneration templates, small molecules, as well as gene therapy that have enabled the regeneration or the replacement of some of the injured tissues in experimental animals and in.   Regeneration occurs widely in the animal kingdom, although their regenerative capacity varies ebrates can regenerate the entire organisms (e.g., planarians and Hydra; Wittlieb et al. , van Wolfswinkel et al. ).Phylogenetically primitive vertebrates, such as amphibians and fish, are capable of regenerating substantial parts of their body but not an entire Cited by: Part of the Results and Problems in Cell Differentiation book series (RESULTS, volume 1) Regeneration in animals and related problems (Ed.: V.
