A receptor based model for pattern formation in Hydra

Abstract:

We propose a new theoretical model for pattern regulation in Hydra. Our model treats positional value and "head activation potential" as manifestations of the same cellular property, the amount of a regulatory biochemical bound to the cells via surface receptors. The model centres on the recently discovered interaction between the head- and foot-forming mechanisms, and we propose that both head and foot formation could be controlled by receptor-biochemical binding. Positional value is determi...
