Prolactin's role in the early stages of liver regeneration in rats.

Abstract

Liver regeneration after partial hepatectomy (PHx) is a complex process that is regulated by hemodynamic changes, the modulation of cytokines and growth factors, and the activation of immediate early transcription factors that lead to a round of hepatocyte mitosis.
