The endogenous electric fields at the wound site had been found since 18th century, while its biological significance in wound healing, organ regeneration and development was unveiled until recent year. Here we summarized the mechanisms of the generation of endogenous electric fields and its significance in different biological events. Moreover, the ion flux behind the endogenous electric fields was introduced as well.
