Effect of the immunosuppressants on hepatocyte cells proliferation and apoptosis during liver regeneration after hepatectomy - molecular studies.

Abstract

The regeneration and remodeling of the transplanted liver is the result of hepatocyte proliferation and apoptosis (programmed cell death). The purpose of this study was to verify the influence of immunosuppressants on the expression levels of genes: IL-6 (regulator of hepatocyte proliferation), pro-apoptotic (Bak and Bax) and anti-apoptotic (Bcl-Xl and Bcl… (More)
