Adult Liver Stem Cells

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In mammals, the adult liver contains many cell types of various embryological origins. Nevertheless, the terms liver stem cell and hepatic stem cell are used only for precursors of the two epithelial liver cell types; the hepatocytes and the bile duct epithelial cells. Therefore, only hepatocyte and bile duct stem cells are described here.
