Periportal and perivenous hepatocytes differ in their content of many key enzymes and subcellular structures. The cells also receive different regulatory signals due to the gradients established during liver passage of oxygen, substrates and hormones. The signal heterogeneity is important not only for short-term regulation of metabolism but also for long… (More)
