Amla (Embilca officinalis) stimulates lens regeneration in the frog. - GreenMedInfo Summary
Effect of Emblica officinalis (Gaertn) on lens regeneration in the frog, Rana cyanophlyctis (Schneider).
Indian J Exp Biol. 2009 Mar;47(3):157-62. PMID: 19405379
Emblica officinalis (Amla) accelerated cell proliferation and dedifferentiation of pigmented epithelial cells of dorsal iris and consequently induced lens regeneration in R. cyanophlyctis. Further it enhanced the percentage of lens regeneration not only in young tadpoles but also is adult frogs. Lens regeneration ability declined with the age of animals in both control as well as treated groups.
