Cell lineage study in the liver using retroviral mediated gene transfer. Evidence against the streaming of hepatocytes in normal liver.

Abstract

The fate of normal hepatocytes in adult rat liver was studied after genetic labeling using the Escherichia coli beta-galactosidase gene coupled to a nuclear localization signal. The marker gene was introduced by direct in vivo retroviral-mediated gene transfer into hepatocytes 24 hours after partial hepatectomy. Analysis of beta-galactosidase expression in… (More)
