Wound healing requires the action of stem cells. In mice that lack the Sept2/ARTS gene, stem cells involved in wound healing live longer and wounds heal faster and more thoroughly than in normal mice.

Red and orange mark hair follicle stem cells, which activate to cause hair regrowth, an indication of healing.
