Ionic Messengers in Development and Cancer

Cover legend

The background image shows a frog tadpole tail, with the red color revealing the nervous system. The regeneration of neurons after the tail is amputated is guided in part by bioelectrical signaling, and this image shows the neurons re-growing after such an amputation. Photo courtesy of Dany S. Adams and Michael Levin. Inset: facial view of an early cleavage stage zebrafish embryo showing in pseudocolor the Ca2+ transients that accompany the first few meroblastic divisions of the blastoderm. Ca2+ dynamics were visualized via aequorin-generated luminescence. Images from Sarah E. Webb and Andrew L. Miller.
