  • Oval cells are the putative liver stem cells that proliferate during hepatocarcinogenesis and chemically-induced severe liver injury. Antigens traditionally associated with haematopoietic cells, such as c-Kit, have been reported to be expressed by oval cells. Previous studies suggested that stem cell factor (SCF) and c-Kit were critical to oval cell development. However, the role of SCF/c-Kit signals in oval cell proliferation still remains unclear. Recently, we reported the establishment of… CONTINUE READING
