How does a zebrafish grow a new tail?

ger, a former UW postdoctoral fellow who leads the Wnt Signaling in Development and Regeneration research group at the TUD's Biotechnology Center. "This is very exciting, because this gene might also inhibit regeneration in mammals and man. So, if we find ways of interfering with the function of Wnt5b, we might be able to promote regeneration."

Moon added that, because the same genes for turning on and turning off growth and development are found in humans, and drugs exist that can regulate this pathway, the findings are directly relevant to future testing of whether scientists can increase the capacity of humans to re-build damaged organs.
