Stanford: Protein primes Mouse SC to quickly Repair Injury

Like drag car racers revving their engines at the starting line, #stem cells (SC) respond more quickly to injury when they’ve been previously primed with one dose of a single protein, according to a study from the #Stanford University School of Medicine.

Mice given the priming protein recover muscle function more quickly after damage, their skin heals more rapidly and even the shaved area around the injury regrows hair more quickly, the study found. Harnessing the power of this protein may one day help people recover more quickly from surgery or restore youthful vigor to aging stem cells.
