1. Dry weight has been determined of individual hepatocytes isolated from rats kept at natural or at reversed daily light-dark cycle, and from rats under time-restricted feeding. Behaviours of liver weight, mitotic activity and binuclearity frequency of the hepatocytes and serum corticosterone have been also investigated. 2. At natural light-dark cycle, liver weight, hepatocyte mitotic activity, and serum corticosterone were higher during the day than during the night. In accordance, dry weight… CONTINUE READING
