It has been known for well over 50 years that ctenophores have the capacity to regenerate but the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying this ability are unknown. We have studied wound healing and adult regeneration in the ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi and show that cell proliferation is activated at the wound site and is indispensable for whole-body regeneration. Wound healing occurs normally in the absence of cell proliferation forming a scar-less wound epithelium. No blastema is generate...
