Figure 1. Brain regeneration
In the zebrafish brain, injured neurons release a signal (LTC4) that stimulates resident immune cells (microglia, leukocytes, and other glia) to release a signal (LTC4) that promotes neurogenesis. The transcription factor Gata3 in both the immune cells and the neuronal progenitor cells may operate as a molecular switch that controls the repair phenotype of the inflammation.
