ABSTRACT
Adaptive immunity has been suggested to limit regeneration in mammals. However, in this issue of Developmental Cell, Hui et al. (2017) report that regulatory T cells are required for regeneration of heart, spinal cord, and retina in the zebrafish. Intriguingly, in each organ system, Treg cells secrete organ-specific regeneration factors.
