Cell Reprogramming During Liver Regeneration

Caption: Hepatocytes are reprogrammed into biliary cells upon liver injury. Immunofluorescence analysis of yellow fluorescent protein-expressing mouse hepatocytes at 4 weeks after toxin-induced injury. YFP-expressing hepatocytes are green, biliary cells are red, cell nuclei are blue. In the center of the field is a duct containing multiple hepatocyte-derived biliary cells, which appear yellow since are expressing both green and red immunofluorescence.
