Multiple inflammatory-, tissue remodelling- and fibrosis genes are differentially transcribed in the livers of Abcb4 (-/ - ) mice harbouring chronic cholangitis.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Abcb4 (-/-) mice secrete phosphatidylcholine-free, cytotoxic bile and develop chronic cholangitis. The aim of this study was to identify differentially transcribed genes whose products contribute to the liver tissue pathology during this disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS Hepatic gene transcription was measured in 3-, 6-, 9- and 20-week-old Abcb4… (More)
