Tissue Regeneration Function is Found in Human Genes

They don't say about complete regeneration but hope that their work will help in understanding the mechanisms of the human body recover from injury.

Scientists told how they came to this discovery. They investigated the activity of genes in fish. When the fin isolation or injury of the heart muscle in animals happen, the leptin gene was activated, that accelerates tissue regeneration. Researchers note that the collected material - only the beginning of work. It will take several years to fully reveal the mechanism of tissue regeneration.
