... fibrosis. Therefore, new strategies for anti-fibrotic therapy are required. Various kinds of hepatocyte damage result in inflammation, which leads to the activation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs), which are the major source of myofibroblasts in the liver. Myofibroblasts proliferate in response to various...

.... Most of the knowledge on the cell and molecular biology of hepatic fibrosis derives from in vitro studies employing culture of activated hepatic stellate cells isolated from rat, mouse or human liver. It is now evident that other ECM-producing cells, i.e. fibroblasts and myofibroblasts of the portal...

...Claus Kordes; Iris Sawitza; Silke Götze; Dieter Häussinger Hepatic stellate cells are mainly known for their contribution to fibrogenesis in chronic liver diseases, but their identity and function in normal liver remain unclear. They were recently identified as liver-resident mesenchymal stem cells...
