Do salamanders' immune systems hold the key to regeneration?

Do salamanders' immune systems hold the key to regeneration? | Stemcells | Scoop.it
Salamanders' immune systems are key to their remarkable ability to regrow limbs, and could also underpin their ability to regenerate spinal cords, brain tissue and even parts of their hearts, scientists have found.
bricoleuric's insight:

Nice missing piece in the regeneration story.  Maybe it is all in the macrophage..
