We will examine the hypothesis that spatial zonation and hepatocyte polyploidy evolved to enable the liver to optimally operate.
It has been widely reported that the hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) displays a response that regulates the redox homeostasis by different mechanisms and diverse liver diseases such as the expression of antioxidant proteins, or repression of prooxidant systems in alcoholic liver disease [5-8], in drug-induced liver injury [9, 10], or by the action of cytotoxic growth factors like transforming growth factor beta (TGF-[beta]) [11]; even more, HGF can suppress the activity and expression of one of the main ROS generator systems, the NADPH oxidase [12].
FGF4 is the main factor for endodermal patterning during embryogenesis (19), and HGF is the principal factor for hepatocyte differentiation (20), proliferation, and regeneration and development (21).
The ability to offer both individual, recombinant transporter data and transporter data in a whole cell, primary hepatocyte is unique, and will allow them to answer questions throughout the drug discovery and development continuum, ultimately providing better answers for their customers.
In the article 'Generation of Functional Hepatocyte-Like Cells from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells in a Scalable Suspension Culture' the authors describe the method used for scale-up, differentiation of the pluripotent stem cells into liver cells, and characterization and purification of the hepatocytes based on their physiological properties and the expression of liver cell biomarkers.
Statins are metabolized mainly by the liver and increase aminotransferases levels with hepatic potential toxicity that might be attributed to alteration of the hepatocyte cellular membrane rather than direct liver injury (Veillard and Mach, 2002; Clarke and Mills, 2006).
