Abstract: During forelimb regeneration in the newt Notophthalmus viridescens, the dynamic expression of a transitional matrix rich in hyaluronic acid, tenascin-C, and fibronectin controls muscle cell behavior in vivo and in vitro. However, the influence of extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling on tissue stiffness and the cellular response to mechanical variations during regeneration was unknown. By measuring the transverse stiffness of tissues in situ, we found undifferentiated regenerative blastemas were less stiff tha…
