Comments p.479 right column bottom paragraph:”As epithelial cells divide in the body column, cells are constantly displaced into the tentacles and basal disk, and differentiation constantly occurs (Fig. 1).” p.483 right column 2nd paragraph:"In situ hybridization provided evidence that H. vulgaris FoxO is expressed in multipotent interstitial stem cells. Interstitial stem cells are the most rapidly dividing of the stem cells present in adult Hydra and give rise to gametes as well as some somatic cell types (Fig. 1)." p.483 left column bottom paragraph:"FoxO proteins are transcription factors involved in several cellular processes including apoptosis, the cell cycle, DNA damage repair, oxidative stress, cell differentiation, and glucose metabolism (Huang and Tindall 2007)."
