Abstract

Tissue repair is critical for animal survival. The skin epidermis is particularly exposed to injuries, which necessitates rapid repair. The coordinated action of distinct epidermal stem cells recruited from various skin regions together with other cell types, including fibroblasts and immune cells, is required to ensure efficient and harmonious wound healing. A complex crosstalk ensures the activation, migration and plasticity of these cells during tissue repair.
