Abstract

Patterns of mammalian hair growth vary in different regions of the body, but the mechanisms controlling this heterogeneity are unclear. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Yu et al. (2018) show that Hoxc gene expression in hair follicle mesenchyme varies along the anterior-posterior body axis and contributes to regional differences in hair growth.
