Transforming growth factor-alpha and hepatocyte growth factor are important stimulators of hepatocyte proliferation. In this series of experiments we sought to measure the expression of transforming growth factor-alpha mRNA by hepatocytes in response to toxic liver injury produced by carbon tetrachloride or galactosamine and to perform a more detailed analysis of transforming growth factor-alpha expression after partial hepatectomy. We also explored the interactions of transforming growth… CONTINUE READING
