    Adult mammalian liver cells, which are in cell cycle's G[sub 0] phase, differentiate to accomplish specific functions and do not divide. Only as a result of damage or partial hepatectomy (PH), the cells multiply in a rapid way and cause the organ's regeneration. In one of our previous studies,...
