Permissiveness of human biliary epithelial cells to infection by hepatitis C virus.


The cellular tropism of hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an important but much debated issue. Permissivity to HCV of biliary cells has never been demonstrated. In this context, we used gallbladder epithelial cells (GBEC) as a model of the more proximal biliary epithelium. These cells were isolated from HCV-positive and -negative individuals and cultured for up to… (More)
