Background and Purpose. It has been suggested that liver regeneration can occur either by differentiated adult hepatocytes which retain the capability for several rounds of replication or by hepatic progenitor cells, depending on the number of hepatocytes lost. We sought to study the differentiation potential of hepatocytes following partial hepatectomy (PH) in rats.
