Decreased neoblast progeny and increased cell death during starvation-induced planarian degrowth.

Abstract:

The development of a complex multicellular organism requires a careful coordination of growth, cell division, cell differentiation and cell death. All these processes must be under intricate and coordinated control, as they have to be integrated across all tissues. Freshwater planarians are especially plastic, in that they constantly replace somatic tissues from a pool of adult somatic stem cells and continuously undergo growth and degrowth as adult animals in response to nutrient availabilit...
