A universal program for tissue regeneration?

Dev Cell. 2012 Dec 11;23(6):1123-4. doi: 10.1016/j.devcel.2012.11.009.


Reporting in this issue of Developmental Cell, Kizil et al. (2012) identify the transcription factor Gata3 as an important player in regeneration of the zebrafish adult telencephalon. Other injured tissues like the heart and the fin also upregulate Gata3 in response to injury, suggesting that Gata3 is a general response to tissue damage.
