BACKGROUND & AIMS Development of fibrosis is part of the pathophysiologic process of chronic liver disease. Although it is considered deleterious, it also represents a form of tissue repair. Deposition of extracellular matrix changes the cellular environment of the liver; we investigated whether it increases resistance to noxious stimuli and the role of changes in intracellular signaling to hepatocytes in mediating this effect. METHODS Primary cultures of mouse hepatocytes were exposed to… CONTINUE READING
