Gonadectomy and tail regeneration in the gekkonid lizard Hemidactylus flaviviridis

, : Gonadectomy and tail regeneration in the gekkonid lizard Hemidactylus flaviviridis. Indian Journal of Experimental Biology 26(11): 832-834

The involvement of gonadal hormones in lizard tail regeneration has been assessed by removing gonads and determining its effect on the rate of growth and total elongation in H. flaviviridis. Apart from an initial 48 hr delay in the formation of blasterma and a retardation between 25th and 40th days, the growth rate remained faster in gonadectomized lizards as compared to the controls. Probable favourable influence of gonadal steroids in wound healing, and better post-blastemic growth and differentiation of the regenerate in the absence of gonadal steroids have both been inferred from the present study.
