Control of stem cell activity is essential for accurate regeneration. Pathogen- or chemical-induced intestinal damage is now shown to recruit haemocytes expressing bone morphogenetic protein signals that stimulate proliferation of intestinal stem cells and subsequently induce their quiescence, in conjunction with muscle-derived bone morphogenetic proteins. A temporal switch in expression of Type I receptors enables this two-phase response.
