Microdensitometric analysis of denervation effects on newt limb blastema cells

  • R. M. Loyd
  • T. G. Connelly


This report examines the fate of cycling cells in normal and denervated blastemas of adult newts. Cells are found to accumulate in G1 in blastemas which are nerve independent. No stage specific accumulation different from controls is found in limbs with nerve-dependent blastemas.
