A previous study demonstrated that, upon liver injury, MCs migrate inward from the liver surface and give rise to hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) in biliary fibrosis induced by bile duct ligation (BDL) or myofibroblasts in CCl4-induced fibrosis. The present study analyzed the role of transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) signaling in mesothelial-mesenchymal transition (MMT) and the fate of MCs during liver fibrosis and its…
