Examining the induction of limb regeneration through modulation of stump currents by the sodium ionphore monensin in non-regenerating post-metamorphic Rana pipiens frogs.

Hessler Jr., David Patterson.

Limb regeneration in mammals has long been a notion better belonging to the science fiction realm than in reality. Humans are able to demonstrate some regenerative capabilities in the liver and in the regenerating fingertips of young children (Illingsworth 1974). Here we demonstrate a study aimed to inducing regeneration of an amputated limb by an adult non-regenerative frog. Regenerative medicine... read more
