A progressive cholangiofibrosis was developed as an animal model in 6-week-old male F344 rats by repeated intraperitoneal injections of α-naphthylisothiocyanate (ANIT) for 19 weeks; liver samples were examined at post-first injection (PFI) weeks 3, 7, 10, 13, 16 and 19, focusing on characteristics of macrophages and myofibroblasts by immunohistochemical(More)
A 12-year-old female miniature dachshund was presented with a tan-white, firm mass (4 × 3 × 2 cm) occupying the left medial canthus. The mass compressed and displaced the left eye dorsally, and it was surgically removed. Microscopically, the mass was composed of interlacing bundles of spindle cells with clear cytoplasm and a small number of atypical(More)
Non-parenchymal cells in the liver consist mainly of Kupffer cells, hepatic stellate (HS) cells and cholangiocytes. To establish base-line data and clarify the nature, this study investigated immunohistochemically the kinetics of these cell populations in developing liver of F344 rats. Samples were collected from fetuses on days 18 and 20, neonates on days(More)
The function of the intermediate filament protein nestin is poorly understood. The significance of nestin expression was assessed in α-naphthylisothiocyanate (ANIT)-induced cholangiocyte injury lesions in F344 rats. Liver samples obtained from rats injected intraperitoneally with ANIT (75 mg/kg) on post-injection days 0 (control) and 1-12 were labelled(More)
To investigate characteristics of malignant melanomas with various pathobiological features, a homotransplantable tumor line (RMM) was established from a spontaneous amelanotic melanoma found in the pinna of an aged F344 rat. RMM tumors were transplanted in syngeneic rats by serial subcutaneous implantation with 100% intake. The original and RMM tumors(More)
INTRODUCTION Resident and exudate macrophages play an important role in the development of liver cirrhosis. Ionized calcium binding adaptor molecule 1(+) (Iba1(+)) and galectin-3(+) (Gal-3(+)) macrophages regulate liver fibrosis probably through pro-inflammatory and pro-fibrotic factors. Macrophages show polarized functions in liver fibrosis; however,(More)
Hepatic stellate cells (HSCs), which can express glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) in normal rat livers, play important roles in hepatic fibrogenesis through the conversion into myofibroblasts (MFs). Cellular properties and possible derivation of GFAP-expressing MFs were investigated in thioacetamide (TAA)-induced rat liver injury and subsequent(More)
To investigate pathogenesis of post-bile duct (BD) injury fibrosis, interlobular BD epithelial injury was induced in male F344 rats by a single IP injection of α-naphthylisothiocyanate (75 mg/kg body weight) and rats were observed for 12 days. On days 1 to 2, cholangiocytes were injured and desquamated. On days 3 to 5, the affected BD began to regenerate,(More)
Histopathologically, fibrosis in Fasciola-infected cattle livers was characterized by inflammatory cell infiltration, such as eosinophils and macrophages, pseudo-lobule, pseudo-bile ducts and fibrotic bridges separating pseudo-lobules; the fibrotic lesions were developed in the Glisson's sheath. Pseudo-bile ducts consisting of epithelial cells reacted(More)
Hepatic macrophages (including Kupffer cells) play a crucial role in the homeostasis and act as mediators of inflammatory response in the liver. Hepatic macrophages were depleted in male F344 rats by a single intravenous injection of liposomal clodronate (CLD; 50mg/kg body weight), and immunophenotypical characteristics of depleting and repopulating(More)
