In the gut, coordinated cell interactions regulate tissue repair and immunity. How enteric glial cells (EGCs) mediate these processes remained elusive. In a recent paper, Progatzky et al. demonstrate that EGCs interact with immune and mesothelial cells under homeostasis and helminth infection, revealing an indispensable role of an interferon-γ (IFNγ)-EGC-CXCL10 axis in tissue repair.
