In PLOS One, an Arizona State University-led team took a look at the transcriptional programs involved in lizard tail regeneration in the green anole, Anolis carolinensis. Through RNA sequencing on tissue samples from green anole tails, including more than two-dozen samples taken from regenerating tails, the researchers identified 326 genes showing differential expression during tail regrowth.
