The authors discuss the distinct embryonic origins, microenvironments, and transcriptomic profiles of fibroblastic lineages, and how these varying lineages shape the skin’s wound response across injury depths, anatomic locations, and developmental time to promote either scarring or regeneration.

The disease ranges in severity from asymptomatic through to severe acute respiratory distress requiring intensive care treatment and mechanical ventilation, which can lead to respiratory failure and death.
Simplified conditions will facilitate the use of bovine ESCs for gene editing applications and pluripotency and lineage commitment studies.
