Expression and localization of AT1 receptors in hepatic Kupffer cells: its potential role in regulating a fibrogenic response
Previous studies have showed that the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of liver cirrhosis. The localization of angiotensin II receptor in hepatic stellateExpand

PDZ-domain containing-2 (PDZD2) is a novel factor that affects the growth and differentiation of human fetal pancreatic progenitor cells.
Early-trimester human fetal pancreas is a promising potential source of pancreatic progenitor cells. However, the ethical controversy associated with the source of these cells, and technicalExpand

In vivo treatment with glucagon-like peptide 1 promotes the graft function of fetal islet-like cell clusters in transplanted mice.
Fetal pancreatic tissue has been suggested as a possible cell source for islet replacement therapy in type 1 diabetes mellitus. This tissue consists of a small amount of beta-cells, but a raft ofExpand

PDZ-domain containing-2 (PDZD2) drives the maturity of human fetal pancreatic progenitor-derived islet-like cell clusters with functional responsiveness against membrane depolarization.
We recently reported the isolation and characterization of a population of pancreatic progenitor cells (PPCs) from early trimester human fetal pancreata. The PPCs, being the forerunners of adultExpand

Isolation and in vitro characterization of pancreatic progenitor cells from the islets of diabetic monkey models.
Abstract Recent studies on the identification of stem/progenitor cells within adult mouse and human pancreatic islets have raised the possibility that autologous transplantation might be used inExpand
