hepatocyte

A liver cell. Hepatocytes are metabolically very active and are rich in MITOCHONDRIA, LYSOSOMES and ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM. Each is surrounded by highly permeable capillaries.

Therefore, when conducting pharmacokinetic studies, it was assumed that hepatocyte concentrations approximate plasma concentrations, with the drug equilibration across the sinusoidal membrane being obtained by passive diffusion.
Many hepatocytes animal sources have been proposed and investigated as alternatives to human hepatocytes, including human tumor cell lines, immortalized hepatocytes from pig livers, and hepatocytes from transgenic pigs [75].
Total RNA, including short RNAs, was purified from frozen hepatocytes (pooled 10 donors HMCS10, GIBCO) and cells harvested at two different time points: day 20 of hepatic differentiation (hepatoblast stage of HD) and day 24, the last day of differentiation, using the miRNeasy Micro Kit (Qiagen) and quantified by NanoDrop spectrophotometer.

[25] demonstrated that the scaffolds immobilized by galactose retained a greater number of hepatocytes than those scaffolds which were unmodified or immobilized with galactose, due to specific interactions between hepatocytes and galactose moieties.
The liver, composed of parenchymal cells--hepatocytes--and nonparenchymal cells including endothelial cells, Kupffer cells, lymphocytes, and stellate cells, has a unique capacity to precisely regulate its growth and mass, which is particularly remarkable since hepatocytes are stable cells and rarely divide in the normal state, as they are quiescent in the G0 phase of the cell cycle [1].
