2A). A multipotent satellite cell progeny clone. Yakushiji N, Yokoyama H, Tamura K. Repatterning in amphibian limb regeneration: a model for study of genetic and epigenetic control of organ regeneration. With the knowledge of this ability, one might ask if human limb regeneration may be feasible in the future. (2004) reflect phylogenetic or ontogenetic differences, or are caused by dissimilarities in the experimental paradigms. The peptide was covalently linked to fluorescein-conjugated dextran (70 kD; Invitrogen) via the COOH-terminal cysteine residue, using the heterobifunctional cross-linker sulfo-SMCC (Pierce Chemical Co.) as described previously (Broder et al., 1997; Maroto et al., 2004). The Anatomical Record Part B: The New Anatomist. That means that nerve axon regeneration is happening at the wound site in tandem with tissue, bone and muscle regeneration. Wada, M.R., M. Inagawa-Ogashiwa, S. Shimizu, S. Yasumoto, and N. Hashimoto. Der Axolotl ist ein mexikanischer Schwanzlurch und kann abgetrennte Gliedmaßen und sogar Organe nachwachsen lassen. Cell dedifferentiation is a process in which cells that have already changed into a specialized cell type are reverted back to an undifferentiated form, the opposite of differentiation. 5 G). Animals were anesthetized by placing them in an aqueous solution of 0.1% ethyl 3-aminobenzoate methanesulfonate salt (Sigma-Aldrich) for 15 min. Thus, limb regeneration and mammalian tissue repair share common cellular and molecular programs. Fibroblast growth factors. (C) Western blot analyses show the increased amount of M-cadherin and myosin heavy chain and the reduced amount of Pax7 proteins as a result of myogenic differentiation (lane a, proliferation medium; lane b, after 6 d in myogenic differentiation medium). For immunofluorescence studies, primary antibodies were detected with appropriate species-specific Alexa Fluor–conjugated secondary antibodies (Invitrogen). 5 E) and that the cells produced calcium deposits stained by Alizarin red (Fig. Proliferating clonal cells were maintained at a confluency of no more than 60% to avoid spontaneous differentiation before being subjected to differentiation studies. 2005 Nov 1; 287(1):14-24. We describe a multipotent Pax7+ satellite cell population located within the skeletal muscle of the salamander limb. 1987 Dec 1; 1(6):434-40. We demonstrate that skeletal muscle dedifferentiation involves satellite cell activation and that these cells can contribute to new limb tissues. With a fully sequenced genome in hand, scientists hope they are finally poised to learn how axolotls regenerate lost body parts Figure 3: The overall process of limb regeneration. These results show that implanted satellite cell progeny can give rise to new tissues during limb regeneration and indicate that metaplasia may occur during salamander limb regeneration. Figure 1: The limb regeneration process over a 70 day period. The original limb cells at the site of injury are thought to possess positional memory of their placement along the 3 axes of the limb which are inherited by cells of the blastema as they re-differentiate, allowing them to migrate to the appropriate position in the growing limb. 2 μg of each cell lysate was separated on a 10% PAGE gel and transferred to nitrocellulose membrane. 1, H–J). Limb regeneration itself is not a unique feature of salamanders as all other organisms possess some degree of regenerative capability. Gross. By continuing to use our website, you are agreeing to, http://ww.jcb.org/cgi/content/full/jcb.200509011, microRNA-1 and microRNA-206 regulate skeletal muscle satellite cell proliferation and differentiation by repressing Pax7, Distinct roles for Pax7 and Pax3 in adult regenerative myogenesis, The Fine Structure of Blastema Cells and Differentiating Cartilage Cells in Regenerating Limbs of Amblystoma Larvae. 5 C). (2001), which showed that amputation as such was not sufficient to produce blastema progenitors. “Salamanders are not special. However, common factors seen in all dedifferentiation events includes the down-regulation of differentiation-promoting genes and  the upregulation of embryonic and regeneration-specific genes (7). To start addressing these questions we combined histological analyses and in vitro culture of single newt myofibers, along with implantation and tracing of labeled myofiber-derived cells. The exact identity of signals that link tissue injury to blastema formation needs to be elucidated, as it may reveal key aspects of blastema formation involving both myofiber fragmentation and concomitant stem cell activation. An LSM 510 Meta laser microscope with LSM 5 Image Browser software (both Carl Zeiss MicroImaging, Inc.) was used for confocal analyses. Kumar, A., C.P. Seminars in Cell & Developmental Biology. Hence, it is still not clear whether the term dedifferentiation solely refers to the reversal of the differentiated state of mature cells, to the activation of stem cells in the disorganizing tissues, or to a combination of these two definitions. Although the potential role of stem cells in blastema formation has been suggested (Corcoran and Ferretti, 1999; Carlson, 2003; Odelberg, 2004), no such cells have been previously identified in the newt limb. In contrast to mammals, salamanders can regenerate complex structures after injury, including entire limbs. 2003 Dec 31; 34(6):565-71. As a control, we injected the contralateral limbs with PBS before amputation at the same axial level. Limb regeneration depends on the formation of a blastema, from which the new appendage develops. The blastema grows distally over time via the proliferation of mesenchymal stem cells until the limb has fully regenerated. (C and D) Photomicrographs showing a late bud stage regenerate. Video 1 shows the derivation of proliferating mononucleate cells from a 10–14-d-old newt myofiber in vitro. Newt satellite cell progeny are multipotent. As indicated by the presence of Pax7+ (Fig. The process of dedifferentiation is not yet well understood due to its complexity and the fact that it does not follow the same process for each tissue type. During this process, cells of the blastema produce neurotrophic factors involved in the regeneration of sensory and motor nerves (3). However, the additional basement membrane that separates newt satellite cells from the sarcolemma may reflect that newt satellite cells are in some respect evolutionary intermediates between interstitial stem cells and satellite cells, which were found to be separate populations in mammals (Asakura et al., 2002; Tamaki et al., 2002). Digestion with type I collagenase (Sigma-Aldrich) solution (0.2% wt/vol in DME; Invitrogen) supplemented with 1% Glutamax (Invitrogen) and 1% penicillin/streptomycin (Invitrogen) was performed in a water bath at 25°C for 3–4 h. All media used in this and subsequent cell cultures were diluted 24% with distilled water. These data show that satellite cell activation, rather than cellularization of the syncytium, resulted in a proliferating cell progeny population in our culture system. As we can distinguish between the process of cellularization of the syncytial myofiber on one hand and satellite cell activation on the other, the quantitative aspects of these two separate events can be examined. Trypsinized single cells were transferred to one well of a 24-well culture plate that contained a 1:1 ratio of normal and conditioned proliferation media (13% FCS, 1% Glutamax, 1% insulin, and 1% penicillin/streptomycin). The lack of molecular markers has also obstructed the prospective isolation of blastema progenitors. These observations further suggest an important role of satellite cells in the regeneration of missing body parts in vertebrates. If this condition is met, it results in the formation of a structure called the wound epidermis. 4, A–C). Normal newt limb regeneration requires matrix metalloproteinase function. It is unclear to what extent differentiated cells reverse mature phenotypes and to what extent undifferentiated cells, such as stem cells, residing within differentiated tissues become activated, followed by their incorporation into the blastema. Single myofibers were placed in 35-mm Falcon culture dishes (BD Biosciences) coated with 1 mg/ml Matrigel (BD Biosciences) in DME supplemented with 13% FCS (Invitrogen), 1% Glutamax, 1% penicillin/streptomycin, and 1% insulin (Sigma-Aldrich) and cultured at 25°C. (D) Satellite cell progeny can enter an adipogenic pathway, as revealed by Oil red staining in lipid droplets (arrowheads). For example, if a salamander … collagen) of the extracellular matrix which provides structural support to surrounding cells (8). *, blastema. The model in Fig. Adult red-spotted newts, Notophthalmus viridescens, were supplied by Charles D. Sullivan Co., Inc. and maintained in a humidified room at 15–20°C. While it is currently not possible to induce limb regeneration in humans, by studying the genetic and molecular mechanisms at work during injury repair in early mammalian life and in other organisms which can fully regenerate limbs, we can make strides towards tapping into this suppressed ability in the future. Photomicrographs showing a medium bud stage (A and B) and late bud stage regenerate (E and F) with BrdU-labeled cells in the blastema and the epidermis. This is especially valid for skeletal muscle tissue because dedifferentiating skeletal muscle is a significant source of blastema progenitors. 2003 May 2; 92(8):827-39. As part of that positional memory in the fibroblast cells, the blastema knows to grow in the proper sequence to avoid defective regeneration. (C and D) Arrows point to two myonuclei, and arrowheads point to an M-cadherin+ satellite cell. The re-expression of various developmental genes including HOX genes helps to direct the regeneration process of the limb structure, ensuring proper differentiation of blastemal cells until it is completely rebuilt (9). In agreement with this, none of the Pax7+ satellite cells were labeled with NLS-dextran. Third, similar to the mammalian myofiber cultures, we observed that satellite cell activation occurred that was characterized by cell cycle reentry and proliferation of the satellite cell progeny population. Formation of a blastema-like structure, although a rare event, is possible in mammals, as exemplified by the healing capacity of MRL mice and by the seasonal regeneration of deer antlers (Gourevitch et al., 2003; Price et al., 2005). Data show that mature tissues in the stump (e.g., bone, cartilage, and skeletal muscle) respond to amputation by disorganization, histolysis, and increased cellular proliferation. These structures include the jaws, spinal cord, heart ventricles, some eye structures, and most notably their limbs (1). The possibility to induce blastema formation and regeneration in mammals through the activation of a comparable dedifferentiation program has been proposed (Hughes, 2001; Bryant et al., 2002; Stocum, 2004). S2). 2. This is mediated with the help of factors secreted by the AEC (2). Bars, 50 μm. Muneoka K, Han M, Gardiner DM. However, both studies underpin the necessity to further assess the quantitative aspects and functional relevance of satellite cell activation that leads to multipotent progeny on one hand and cellularization and/or fragmentation of the syncytium on the other during limb regeneration. For myogenic differentiation, satellite cell progeny were grown to 90–100% confluency and incubated in DME supplemented with 0.5% horse serum (Invitrogen), 1% Glutamax, 1% penicillin/streptomycin, and 1% insulin. Han M, Yang X, Taylor G, Burdsal CA, Anderson RA, Muneoka K. Limb regeneration in higher vertebrates: developing a roadmap. Although adult mammals do not form a blastema after limb amputation, their skeletal muscle tissue regenerates after injury (Charge and Rudnicki, 2004). These 3 axes include the proximal-distal, anterior-posterior, and dorsal ventral axes. Keating, and A. Nechiporuk. 3 A). And there are many other examples of limited critter regeneration of specific body tissues and parts. Furthermore, lineage shifting across germ layer boundaries has been shown to occur during salamander tail regeneration (Echeverri and Tanaka, 2002). All four injected limbs developed cartilage at this stage, and BrdU-labeled cells were detected within newly formed cartilage tissue in all four cases (Fig. 5 F). Salamander Just Grows It Back.” 3. The bone and soft tissue were trimmed to produce a flat amputation surface. 6, J–M). But in contrast to mammals, these cells were shown to be completely encapsulated by a basement membrane (Popiela, 1976; Cameron et al., 1986), and it has remained unsettled whether adult newts possess a cellular population that is equal to mammalian satellite cells. The ability to form a regeneration blastema, which leads to the epimorphic regeneration of complex body structures, is restricted to some amphibians and fish among vertebrates (Poss et al., 2003). S1). Poss, K.D., M.T. Photomicrographs showing that the fluorescent dextran exclusively labels myonuclei in the syncytium, but not the nuclei in satellite cells. A Chinese giant salamander lived in captivity 52 years and certain species of newts 30 years; however, the life span of some of the smaller species may vary from one to a few years. The regenerates were harvested at different time points and processed for immunohistochemistry. Short B, Brouard N, Occhiodoro-Scott T, Ramakrishnan A, Simmons PJ. This process requires a sufficient amount of nerves to be present in the wound area. The observed multipotentiality of satellite cell progeny does not directly address the question of whether activated satellite cells adopt divergent fates without in vitro expansion. Rudnicki. Dedifferentiation of stump tissues, such as skeletal muscle, precedes blastema formation, but it was not known whether dedifferentiation involves stem cell activation. A total of 25 minutes of recording time of my 3 male axolotls eating pellets and running around. Tamaki, T., A. Akatsuka, K. Ando, Y. Nakamura, H. Matsuzawa, T. Hotta, R.R. First, the local cells dedifferentiate at the wound site into progenitor to form a blastema. A central question is whether the generation of progenitor cells during limb regeneration and mammalian tissue repair occur via separate or overlapping mechanisms. Membranes were developed using an ECL detection kit (GE Healthcare). Conversely, none of the NLS-dextran–labeled myonuclei were Pax7+ (Fig. We isolated and plated single myofibers that were viable and displayed characteristic morphology, such as Z band striation marking the boundaries of the sarcomeres (Fig. This process is generally referred to as the dedifferentiation step leading to the formation of blastema progenitors (Iten and Bryant, 1973). When a human limb is amputated, the end result is scar formation rather than the initiation of limb regeneration (12). Pax7+ cells are present in newt limb skeletal muscle. To distinguish between these two events, we injected a fluorescein-conjugated nuclear-localizing dextran (NLS-dextran) into the myofibers directly after the attachment of the myofiber to the substrate (Fig. Figure 2: Depicting the ability of mesenchymal stem cells to differentiate into various cell types. Salamander species vary in size, from 3.9 cm to 180 cm. Newts were anesthetized and decapitated. BrdU-labeled satellite cell progeny are found in the blastema (*) and, notably, also in the epidermis. The question is how blastema formation is induced in mammals and how it can be promoted. Nevertheless, in light of the available observations, a plausible hypothesis is that skeletal muscle dedifferentiation results in a significant contribution by satellite cells to the blastema and to the regenerate. Asakura, A., P. Seale, A. Girgis-Gabardo, and M.A. Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have managed to sequence the giant genome of a salamander, the Iberian ribbed newt, which is a full six times greater than the human genome. Velloso, Y. Imokawa, and J.P. Brockes. 5-μm-thin frozen sections were thawed at room temperature and immediately fixed in acetone/methanol (1:1) for 5 min at –20°C. The arrow points to a myotube that is devoid of lipid droplets. However, the onset of tissue-specific molecular differentiation programs and the large number of satellite cell progeny within various tissues, which did not alter the speed and mode of regeneration, suggest that the integrated satellite cell progeny are functional. Jamie I. Morrison, Sara Lööf, Pingping He, András Simon; Salamander limb regeneration involves the activation of a multipotent skeletal muscle satellite cell population . 6, C–F). Our data clearly show that satellite cells, which are comparable to mammalian skeletal muscle stem cells, exist in newt skeletal muscle as well. In addition, human tissue in the early stages of life responds to injury with regeneration rather than scarring (1). Some studies mark them using Visible Implant Elastomers (VIE)• Search cover boards every 2-3 weeks from April through October/early November• Other data can include vegetation identification, litter levels, decomposition, soil temperature and moisture• Leaf litter sample to identify invertebrates … Microarray analysis and 454 cDNA sequencing were used to investigate a centuries-old problem in regenerative biology: the basis of nerve-dependent limb regeneration in salamanders. Das Tier ist mit einer Länge von 23-28cm und meist schwarzer oder weißer Farbe keine Schönheit und doch einzigartig … Samulewicz, and E. Heber-Katz. Partridge, and J.E.
