Figure 1 Genes upregulated in activation of hepatic stellate cells. A: Rat hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) were isolated and cultured for 2 d (quiescent HSCs) or for 7 d (activated HSCs) and total RNA was analyzed for gene expression by microarrays in two independent experiments. The fold increase in transcript level and P values for the selected genes is shown; B: Expression of cytokine receptor-like factor 1 (CRLF1), cardiotrophin-like cytokine factor 1 (CLCF1) and ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor (CNTFR) in quiescent and activated HSCs was estimated by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Q vs A: Quiescent HSCs vs activated HSCs; IL-6: Interleukin-6; IL6ST: Interleukin 6 signal transducer; IL6R: Interleukin 6 receptor; CNTF: Ciliary neurotrophic factor.
