Movie S2

Young wild-types regenerate rapidly after dendrotomy
Inverted fluorescence confocal maximum intensity projections time lapse movie of two L4 wild-type animals. PVDs marked with Kaede. Red lightnings mark the sites of injury. Both animals regenerated bypassing the injury sites within 2 hours after laser-induced dendrotomy via menorah-menorah fusion. Note at time 01:40 how two pairs of 3ry dendrites merge and form giant menorahs (blue arrows). At time 01:45 the branch below the bottom blue arrow also connected to the 1ry dendrite bypassing the injury site.

The fusogen AFF-1 can rejuvenate the regenerative potential of adult dendritic trees by self-fusion
