The process of regeneration was identified in the freshwater polyp Hydra almost 200 years ago.

However, it was previously unknown how the orderly regeneration of missing tissues or organs started the following damage.

An interdisciplinary research team at Heidelberg University was able to demonstrate how wound healing signals emitted after damage are translated into particular signals of pattern creation and cell differentiation by studying Hydra.

Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) and the Wnt signaling pathway are critical components that have stayed remarkably unaltered throughout evolution.
