Bile canaliculus formation in cultured HEPG2 cells.


BACKGROUND The plasma membrane of hepatocytes can be divided in sinusoidal, lateral and apical membrane, each with functionally and structurally distinct features. The apical domain consists of the bile canalicular structures. The morphogenesis and the polarization of hepatocytes is still poorly known. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We used HepG2 cells, a hepatoma… (More)
