Exogenous NGF favors initiation of lizard tail regeneration while EGF and TGF-β truncate regenerative growth and commit to precocious muscle and cartilage differentiation

Since growth factors exert control over various cellular events during development and as information in this regard on regenerative growth are scant, the present study has evaluated the effect of exogenous in loco administration of EGF, TGF-β and NGF during the first few days post-autotomy on the course of tail regeneration in Hemidactylus flaviviridis. Further evaluated is the efficacy of NGF to rectify the...

Gastrimargus musicus muscle tissue culture

Cells from legs of Gastrimargus musicus, a grey brown grasshopper were grown in simple media. The medium was tested for growth of muscle cells and with supplements. It was found that the medium containing calcium carbonate had round cells growing close to each other in clumps. The medium containing creatine had cells growing which were elongated and branched and had all the features of fully developed muscle tissue. The...
