Liver regeneration after the loss of hepatic tissue is a fundamental parameter of liver response to injury. Recognized as a phenomenon from mythological times, it is now defined as an orchestrated response induced by specific external stimuli and involving sequential changes in gene expression, growth factor production, and morphologic structure. Many growth factors and cytokines, most notably hepatocyte growth factor, epidermal growth factor, transforming growth factor-α, interleukin-6, tumor… Expand
Augmenter of liver regeneration: Essential for growth and beyond.
TLDR
The functional role of endogenously expressed and exogenously applied ALR is highlighted, as well as an analysis of the clinical importance of ALR, with emphasis on liver disease and in vivo models, aswell as the consequences of mutations in the GFER gene. Expand
Liver regeneration and inflammation: from fundamental science to clinical applications.
TLDR
The mechanisms of tissue repair following damage are described, highlighting the close relationship between inflammation and liver regeneration, and how recent findings can help design novel therapeutic approaches are discussed. Expand
Liver regeneration.
TLDR
Cutting-edge topics in liver regeneration, including in vivo animal models for xenogeneic human hepatocyte expansion and the use of decellularized liver matrices as a 3-dimensional scaffold for liver repopulation, are proposed. Expand
Hepatostat: Liver regeneration and normal liver tissue maintenance
TLDR
Even though a very few hepatocytes proliferate at any given time in normal liver, the mechanisms involved in the maintenance of liver weight by this slow process in the absence of liver injury are not as well understood. Expand
The balancing act of the liver: tissue regeneration versus fibrosis
TLDR
The cellular and molecular switches that balance hepatic regeneration and fibrosis are explored, with a focus on uncovering avenues of disease modeling and therapeutic intervention. Expand
Liver Regeneration: Different Sub-Populations of Parenchymal Cells at Play Choreographed by an Injury-Specific Microenvironment
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms supporting liver regeneration and parenchymal reconstitution are reviewed to determine potential targets that would be amenable for therapeutic manipulation to enhance liver regeneration. Expand
A model of liver regeneration.
TLDR
A model is developed for this network of interactions based on the known data of liver resections that reproduces the relevant published data on liver regeneration and provides geometric insights into the experimental observations to suggest two novel strategies for speeding up liver mass recovery. Expand
Liver regeneration: biological and pathological mechanisms and implications
TLDR
The regenerative mechanisms employed by hepatic cells after liver injury as well as the experimental models used to investigate these mechanisms are described and the clinical implications are discussed. Expand
EMERGING ROLES OF PLATELET-DERIVED GROWTH FACTOR RECEPTOR ALPHA IN CHRONIC LIVER INJURY: POTENTIAL THERAPEUTIC TARGET IN HEPATIC FIBROSIS
TLDR
A distinct pro-fibrotic role of PDGFRα in HSCs during chronic liver injury in both mice and human primary cells is supported and provides an important pre-clinical foundation for the future testing of therapeutic PDG FRα inhibition in hepatic fibrosis. Expand
Hallmarks of postoperative liver regeneration: An updated insight on the regulatory mechanisms
TLDR
Eight hallmarks, including hepatocyte proliferation, contribution of hepatic progenitor cells, inducing angiogenesis, reprogramming of the extracellular matrix, apoptosis and termination of proliferation, inflammation, immune and metabolic regulation, are set as organizing characteristics of postoperative liver regeneration and future directions of refining treatment targets.
