have amazing healing powers, including the ability to regenerate lost limbs.
UnitedHealth/lngenix recently purchased Axolotl
and renamed the company Optumlnsight Regardless, the newly branded vendor has 14 live public HIEs, more than any of its competitors, and is making a deep penetration into the private HIE market as well, with eight validated private HIEs, Allphin says.
We recently found out that pluripotency in axolotls
and mammals depends on a gene called Nanog, which frogs do not have.
As part of the project, the conservationists hope to make the axolotl
a flagship species for the region.
His re/birth, when it occurs, is startling: he suddenly finds himself in the tank with them, apparently now an axolotl
And, if an axolotl
is mated with a yellow-barred tiger salamander, another closely related species, in the laboratory, normal metamorphosis occurs in the hybrid offspring.
To enable the satisfactory mating of adult Axolotls
within a low temperature environment;
were paired and resulting embryos were hatched and larvae were raised individually in plastic container in reverse-osmosis water.
Biologists at the centre have successfully reared about 50 axolotls
- a type of salamander that originates from a single lake in Mexico - from eggs.
(pictured left) are possibly the easiest amphibians to keep as pets.
We induced metamorphosis in Mexican axolotls
(Ambystoma mexieanum) using 5 and 50 nM [T.
The Mexican salamanders called axolotls
, a favorite of some scientists studying regeneration, apparently earned their name from Xolotl, one of the Aztecs' many gods.
