Gene expression in regenerating liver in relation to cell proliferation and stress

Abstract

When hepatocyte proliferation is stimulated in the liver by partial hepatectomy, messenger RNAs coding for fibrinogen, actin, c-myc and topoisomerase I are rapidly accumulated. We distinguish an early phase of accumulation (0-3 h after partial hepatectomy) which is also observed after a sham operation for the four genes, and during inflammation produced by Freund's adjuvant in the case of fibrinogen and c-myc genes. The hepatic response to inflammation appears therefore to mimic events characteristic of the G0/G1 transition, such as the accumulation of the c-myc mRNA. The late phase of mRNA accumulation (beyond 3 h after partial hepatectomy) is typical of liver regeneration. The level of c-myc mRNA is transiently increased (20-fold over normal) 20 h after partial hepatectomy, that is, at the time of DNA synthesis. Topoisomerase-I mRNA level increases between 3 and 24 h after partial hepatectomy (5-10-fold over normal). These results suggest that accumulation of c-myc and topoisomerase-I mRNAs is associated with DNA replication in regenerating liver.
