Abstract:Neoblasts are considered as the sole somatic stem cells in the planarian Dugesia japonica with the capacity to proliferate and give rise to all cell types during regeneration, and they are the cellular basis for wound repair and regeneration. Previous researches demonstrated that neoblasts were composed by different subpopulations, which meant that they were heterogeneous. We reviewed the heterogeneity of neoblasts in aspects of mophology, radio-resistance, cell cycle and molecular markers, which was important for further studying the relationships between neoblast subpopulations, their effects on planarian regeneration and understanding the survival strategy of planarians.
