BACKGROUND/AIMS To learn more about tissue remodelling in fibrotic livers of tetracycline-controlled TGF-beta1 transgenic mice (TGF-beta1-on-mice) and during regeneration after removal of the fibrotic stimulus (off-mice), we investigated the expression of glutamine synthetase (GS), an exclusive pericentrally expressed enzyme. METHODS GS was localised(More)
