Abstract

It has been shown that lens and limb regeneration in lower vertebrates is dependent on various factors such as temperature, light, irradiation, age and species of animals. But nothing is known about the role of the space flight conditions in this process. On the other hand information of this kind can give us an opportunity to prognose the restoration processes in mammals and human. This idea has encouraged us to investigate lens and forelimb regeneration in newts during and after space flight.
