The past and present of planarians--an interview with Vittorio Gremigni. Interview by Alessandra Salvetti and Leonardo Rossi

, : The past and present of planarians--an interview with Vittorio Gremigni. Interview by Alessandra Salvetti and Leonardo Rossi. International Journal of Developmental Biology 56(1-3): 49-52

Vittorio Gremigni is a scientific leader in the field of planarian biology with a very long historical perspective. By using electron microscopy, he contributed to the reconstruction of the phylogenesis of free living "Turbellaria", and he pioneered the study of the origin of blastema cells by using chromosomal markers. In this interview, Professor Gremigni describes the steps that moved his career towards the planarian field, the main scientific achievements he obtained and the changes that are taking place in the field. He also discusses recent progress and unanswered questions on planarian neoblasts and regeneration.

Stopped-flow fluorescence studies on the N-terminal domain of rat CD2 (CD2.d1) have demonstrated that folding from the fully denatured state (U) proceeds via the transient accumulation of an apparent intermediate (I) in a so-called burst phase tha...

However, as an ablation treatment, radiofrequency thermocoagulation treatment also has side effects. To p...

Although this has been attributed to differences in reluctance, it may also be due to differences in t...
