Clues to restore human fingers and toes via animal hair, feathers

In their review, researchers have shed light on possible routes that unlock cellular regeneration in general, and the principles by which hair and feathers regenerate themselves in particular.  The authors, including Cheng-Ming Chuong, Randall B. Widelitz, Ping Wu, and Ting-Xin Jiang of the University of Southern California, and Valerie A.
