, they stick around into adulthood, where they become known as adult pluripotent stem cells or neoblasts.
seizure-like activity (pSLA) is defined as asynchronous paroxysms resulting in a sudden disruption of normal spontaneous locomotor activity, in response to proconvulsive drugs [28, 29].
The freshwater planarian
Dugesia gonocephala is an important component of aquatic ecosystems in the Chilean Altiplano, it is sensitive to pollutants, has a high capacity of regeneration and is easily cultivated in the laboratory.
Geoplana lucasi, Dendy.--This is a remarkable and very rare planarian
, of unusually large size, and with black and white markings.
"Human counterparts exist for most of the genes that we have found to regulate the activities of planarian
stem cells," said Sanchez Alvarado.
Reproductive ecology and evolution in the invasive terrestrial planarian
Bipalium adventitium across North America.
In this study, our main interest was to demonstrate the high level of neurobiological development of the Onychophora, as shown by the presence of cephalic ganglion, well-differentiated neurons characterized by a high production of synaptic vesicles, and having a proportionality of their cytoplasm and nucleus very much similar to that of planarian
neurons (Reuter 1981, Biserova et al.
stem cells share characteristics with those of humans, the work will aid scientists to understand how stem cells can completely repair damaged tissues and organs.
Andy Lavender, Maryville High School, Title: A Study of Planarian
Chop a planarian
into two pieces and each piece will develop the missing parts and become a separate planarian
; the bead of one (or the left side) is identical to the corresponding part of the original; the tail of the other (or the right side) is identical to the tall of the original.
S100-like immunoreactivity in a planarian
. An immunochemical and immunocytochemical study.
's head was split in half (below), and it grew back as two complete heads.
