Purpose of review Cholangiocytes are increasingly recognized as biologically important epithelia because of the diverse array of cellular processes in which they participate. Collectively, these processes define normal function and, when disturbed, account for abnormalities that cause disease. Advances in animal models and sophisticated technology in imaging and gene silencing have led to substantial progress in defining the roles that cholangiocytes play in signaling, transport of water, ions… Expand
