Planarian Resistance to Blades and Bugs.

Planarian Resistance to Blades and Bugs. Cell Host Microbe. 2014 Sep 10;16(3):271-272 Authors: Petersen CP Abstract Planarians famously can regenerate after decapitation. In this issue, Abnave et al. (2014) find they resist infection by multiple bacterial species pathogenic to humans, Drosophila and C. elegans, including M. tuberculosis. These results identify a conserved gene controlling phagocytosis and establish planarians as a powerful system for analyzing host-pathogen interactions.
