The Role of Retinoic Acid and Cellular Retinoic Acid-Binding Protein in the Regenerating Amphibian Limb
We describe here two aspects of our work on retinoic acid (RA) and pattern formation in the regenerating limb. The first concerns the presence of endogenous RA in the regenerating limb and the second concerns experiments on the role of cellular retinoic acid-binding protein (CRABP) in the process of pattern respecification.
