Tissue Repair: A Tendon-see to Regenerate.
A new study establishes genetic tools to ablate tendon progenitor cells in zebrafish larvae, finding that larval tendons display high regenerative capacity. The authors employ this musculoskeletal repair model to explore the source of tendon progenitors by fate mapping and live imaging, as well as underlying molecular stimuli like BMP signaling.
