The inability to mutate specific genes in axolotls and other urodeles, or to add specific genes to the animals, hinders attempts to determine the significance of any new gene that researchers suspect of aiding regeneration.
In fish regeneration, it has also been believed that, as in the urodele limb regeneration, the blastema is formed by cell dedifferentiation.
This amalgamation has occurred several times independently (in the families Salamandridae and Plethodontidae) and would be homoplastic in any of the hypotheses of urodele phylogeny presented by Larson and Dimmick (1993).
The type of larval development, habitat, and distribution of all known anural molgulids and some of the sympatric urodele species is summarized in Table 1.
This result and the presence of insertions, deletions, and codon substitutions in the coding regions of orthologous larval muscle actin genes isolated from the urodele species Molgula oculata suggest that mutations in muscle genes rather than changes in trans-acting regulatory factors are responsible for the regression of muscle cells.
An electrically mediated block to polyspermy in the primitive urodele Hynobius neblosus and phylogenetic comparison with other amphibians.
An evolutionary change in the muscle lineage of an anural ascidian embryo is restored by interspecific hybridization with a urodele ascidian.
During limb regeneration in urodele amphibians, ionic currents, highest shortly after amputation and persisting until blastema formation, have been measured (1).
sparid fishes, batrachosauroid urodeles, sebecosuchian-like crocodilians, and enantiornithine birds (see Le Loeuff, 1991; Buffetaut et al.
Evolutionary relationships in the reproductive modes and the numbers and sizes of ova in the urodeles.
The comparative anatomy of the aortic arches of the urodeles and their relation to respiration and degree of metamorphosis.
Reproductive modes and the number and sizes of ova in the Urodeles.
Urodeles regenerate the spinal cord rather freely, either in the process of regenerating an amputated tail or in healing the cord if it is severed in the animal's body.
Yet Corsica and Sardinia are among the few islands where there are urodeles, cave-dwelling salamanders to be precise (four species of the genus Speleomantes [=Hydromantes] that live in different karstic massifs), and newts (two species of the genus Euproctus).
