The molecular and cellular profile of liver cells during early human development is incomplete, complicating the isolation and study of hepatocytes, cholangiocytes, and hepatic stem cells from the complex amalgam of hepatic and hematopoietic cells, that is, the fetal liver. Epithelial cell adhesion molecule, CD326, has emerged as a marker of hepatic stem cells, and lipopolysaccharide receptor CD14 is known to be expressed on adult hepatocytes. Using flow cytometry, we studied the breadth of… CONTINUE READING
