In the liver, the hepatocyte mass is kept stable through a tight balance between hepatocyte death and proliferation that is frequently lost upon acute or chronic liver injury. Wuestefeld et al. (2013) now identify a potentially druggable target that enhances hepatocyte proliferation and promotes liver regeneration, thereby preventing liver failure.
