Calcium (Ca2+) pathways are important in cell volume regulation in many cells, but its role in volume regulatory processes in cholangiocytes is unclear. Thus, we have investigated the role of Ca2+ in regulatory volume decrease (RVD) in cholangiocytes using freshly isolated bile duct cell clusters (BDCCs) from normal mouse. No significant increase in [Ca2+]i(More)
Primary hepatocytes are the best resource for in vitro studies directed at understanding hepatic processes at the cellular and molecular levels, necessary for novel drug development to treat highly prevalent diseases such as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. There is a need to identify simple methods to genetically(More)
We generated mice expressing a human type III CIITA transgene (CIITA Tg) under control of the CD4 promoter to study the role of CIITA in CD4 T cell biology. The transgene is expressed in peripheral CD4 and CD8 T cells, as well as in thymocytes. When CD4 T cells were differentiated towards the Th2 lineage, both control and CIITA Tg Th2 cells expressed(More)
