Examples of "hepatocytes"
After maturation, the merozoites are released from the hepatocytes and enter the erythrocytic portion of their life-cycle. Note that these cells do not reinfect hepatocytes.
Primary hepatocytes are commonly used in cell biological and biopharmaceutical research. In vitro model systems based on hepatocytes have been of great help to better understand the role of hepatocytes in (patho)physiological processes of the liver. In addition, pharmaceutical industry has heavily relied on the use of hepatocytes in suspension or culture to explore mechanisms of drug metabolism and even predict in vivo drug metabolism.
Hepatocytes manufacture their own structural proteins and intracellular enzymes.
ES-derived hepatocytes are also useful models that could be used in the preclinical stages of drug discovery. However, the development of hepatocytes from ES has proven to be challenging and this hinders the ability to test drug metabolism. Therefore, current research is focusing on establishing fully functional ES-derived hepatocytes with stable phase I and II enzyme activity.
Advancements in bioengineering techniques in the decade after Matsumara's work have led to improved membrane constructs and hepatocyte attachment systems. As time has progressed the sources of hepatocytes have increased. Cell sources now include primary porcine hepatocytes, primary human hepatocytes, human hepatoblastoma (C3A), immortalized human cell lines and stem cells.
In normal individuals, uptake of Tc mebrofenin by hepatocytes is 100%. Decreased liver uptake is indicative of hepatocyte disease. Once in the hepatocytes, Tc mebrofenin is "secreted" into the canaliculi and finally "excreted" by the bile ducts.
Hepatocytes are polyhedral in shape, therefore having no set shape or design. They have surfaces facing the sinusoids, (called sinusoidal faces) and surfaces which contact other hepatocytes, (called lateral faces). Bile canaliculi are formed by grooves on some of the lateral faces of these hepatocytes.
The histologic diagnosis of hepatic adenomas can be aided by reticulin staining. In hepatic adenomas, the reticulin scaffold is preserved and hepatocytes do not form layers of four or more hepatocytes, as is seen in hepatocellular carcinoma.
Hepatic adenomas are, typically, well-circumscribed nodules that consist of sheets of hepatocytes with a bubbly vacuolated cytoplasm. The hepatocytes are on a regular reticulin scaffold and less or equal to three cell thick.
In the smaller portal triads, the four vessels lie in a network of connective tissue and are surrounded on all sides by hepatocytes. The ring of hepatocytes abutting the connective tissue of the triad is called the periportal limiting plate.
It also appears to play a role in liver invasion by "Plasmodium" species. CD81 is required for "Plasmodium vivax" sporozoite entry into human hepatocytes and for "Plasmodium yoelii" sporozoite entry into murine hepatocytes.
Glucagon stimulation of PKA also inactivates the glycolytic enzyme pyruvate kinase in hepatocytes.
iCell Hepatocytes are used in a variety of ways, including prediction of hepatotoxicity in drug development applications. Adverse and unexpected hepatic side effects are one of the most common reasons for drugs to be removed from the market after launch or in late phase clinical trials{iCell Hepatocytes are used as a tool for better predicting hepatic toxicity earlier in the drug discovery process. Other companies that provide hepatocytes include Cellectis and Life Technologies.
The drug myrcludex B, which inhibits virus entry into hepatocytes, is in clinical trials .
Phloretin has been found to inhibit GLUT2 and aquaporin 9 (AQP9) on mouse hepatocytes.
Hepatocytes also synthesize apoproteins with which they then assemble and export lipoproteins (VLDL, HDL).
One of the detoxifying functions of hepatocytes is to modify ammonia into urea for excretion.
They also occur physiologically in hepatocytes, chondrocytes and in fungi (dikaryon).
In its role as myonectin, it also promotes lipid uptake into adipocytes and hepatocytes.
A liver biopsy will show abundant PAS-positive globules within periportal hepatocytes.
