Plasmodium Falciparum Biology - Liver Stage
... falciparum sporozoites enter hepatocytes ... Before entering a hepatocyte the sporozoite typically engages in traversal of several cells ... Once within a hepatocyte the parasite loses its apical complex and surface coat and transforms into a trophozoite ...
Glucokinase - Function and Regulation - Hepatic
... Glucokinase can be rapidly activated and inactivated in hepatocytes by a novel regulatory protein (glucokinase regulatory protein), which operates to maintain an inactive reserve of GK, which can be made quickly ... GKRP moves between nucleus and cytoplasm of the hepatocytes and may be tethered to the microfilament cytoskeleton ... Unlike GK in beta cells, GK in hepatocytes is not associated with mitochondria ...
Cell Therapy - Embryonic Stem Cells - Use of HESCs in Research
... being developed include cardiomyocytes (CM), neurons, hepatocytes, bone marrow cells, islet cells and endothelial cells ... hESC-derived hepatocytes are also useful models that could be used in the preclinical stages of drug discovery ... However, the development of hepatocytes from hESC has proven to be challenging and this hinders the ability to test drug metabolism ...
Bile Canaliculus
... canaliculi also called bile capillaries) is a thin tube that collects bile secreted by hepatocytes ... Hepatocytes are polyhedral in shape, therefore having no set shape or design ... faces) and surfaces which contact other hepatocytes, (called lateral faces) ...
Hepar - Regeneration
... This is predominantly due to the hepatocytes re-entering the cell cycle ... That is, the hepatocytes go from the quiescent G0 phase to the G1 phase and undergo mitosis ... These cells can differentiate into either hepatocytes or cholangiocytes, the latter being the cells that line the bile ducts ...
