Heal thyself
Researchers are examining mice and salamanders for keys to regeneration in humans
Daily Magazine, April 26 -- When Wistar Institute scientists announced last month they could endow mice with enhanced healing powers by altering just one gene, it raised a question: Why didn't evolution lead to mice - and people - with this power in the first place? David Stocum from Indiana University says there's a fundamental difference between healing and regeneration. When we heal, we form scar tissue like a patch over a wound. Salamanders don't make scar tissue but instead reprogram groups of cells, turning back some molecular clock to make them act like embryonic stem cells that can generate all kinds of tissues. He thought these mice were not healing but regenerating. Full story.
