Small hepatocytes (SHs) are hepatic progenitor cells that can be cryopreserved for a long time. After thawing, the cells can proliferate and, when treated with Matrigel, they can differentiate into mature hepatocytes (MHs). In this study, we investigated whether cryopreserved SHs could express cytochromes P450 (P450s), whether P450 expression was induced by appropriate inducers, and whether P450 activities were measurable. 3-Methylcholanthrene (3-MC), phenobarbital (PB), pregnenolone-16… CONTINUE READING
