Aging of Hepatocytes
The purpose of this paper is not to survey current knowledge on aging of hepatic cells in general, but to summarize some of our own results that are concerned with the age changes in DNA content-based polyploidization of hepatocytes of three kinds of laboratory animals: mouse (1), fish (2), and house shrew (3).
