YKL-40 expression in CD14⁺ liver cells in acute and chronic injury.


AIM To demonstrate that CD14⁺ cells are an important source of the growth factor YKL-40 in acute and chronic liver damage. METHODS Rats were inoculated with one dose of CCl(4) to induce acute damage. Liver biopsies were obtained at 0, 6, 12, 24, 48 and 72 h. For chronic damage, CCl(4) was administered three days per week for 6 or 8 wk. Tissue samples were… (More)
