Abstract:

Although liver is one of the most widely studied tissues from the biochemical, physiological and histological points of view, no reliable information is available on (a) the number of hepatic (parenchymal) cells (the structural units in liver which are largely responsible for the tissue-specific functions1) and of “non-hepatic” cells (i.e. cells other than the parenchymal cells) contained in a unit weight of liver; (b) the average dry weight of a hepatic cell; (c) the relative contribution of hepatic cells, the “non-hepatic” cells and the noncellular material toward the dry weight of liver; and (d) the distribution of liver DNA between the hepatic and the “non-hepatic” cells. This communication describes the results of a study in which the above quantities have been estimated for 3-month-old rats using a recently described method2 which effects a good separation of the hepatic cells from the other cellular and non-cellular material in liver.
