Objective To investigate the dynamic change of hepatic stellate cells(HSCs) and the activities of MMP-2 and MMP-9 in rat liver during its regenerative process after 2/3 hepatectomy(partial hepatectomy,PH).Methods Rats were subjected to subtotal hepatectomy according to the method of Higgins and Anderson.After PH,regenerating livers were prepared at different time points.Expression of desmin and GFAP in HSCs were observed by immunohistochemistry and the activities of matrix metalloproteinase-2… CONTINUE READING
