Liver Regeneration

Liver is a visceral organ which has a unique power of regeneration, this property is called homeostasis, in spite of surgical removed the liver can grow back into a full size. Liver regeneration involves the regeneration of liver cells like hepatocytes which possess unlimited capacity for proliferation, sinusoidal endothelial cells and biliary epithelial cells. It is a highly controlled process regulated on highly redundant signals by complex pathways and these signalling pathways are known to stimulate by growth factors, hormones, cytokines, and nuclear receptors but excess accumulation of fats may interfere with the regeneration mechanism of the hepatocytes.
