Abstract: Regeneration, in which lost or damaged tissues are re-grown, is a common phenomenon amongst animals and especially so within the ophiuroids (brittle stars) of the phylum echinodermata. The process of regeneration begins with the injury event followed by a period of cell and tissue reorganization which results in wound healing and tissue re-growth. The genetic programme of regeneration is complex and poorly understood, however the role of gene expression is becoming increasingly well characterise... more
