Repair and regeneration of the pronephric kidney in Xenopus laevis tadpoles.

Caine, Shoshoni.

Abstract: The kidney is a unique organ in that it develops through three distinct forms of increasing complexity, with the most embryonic form (pronephros) serving as the functional organ in the tadpoles of the amphibian model system, Xenopus laevis, and the most complex form (metanephros) being found in adult humans.
