Primary Human Hepatocytes Characterization
Primary human hepatocytes represent a cornerstone in liver-related research and drug development, providing a critical link between in vitro studies and the complex functions of the human liver. These cells offer a range of subcategories, each tailored to specific research needs, further enhancing their versatility and relevance in various scientific applications.
Primary human hepatocytes are the main functional cells of the liver. They make up approximately 70% of all cells within the liver and perform multiple functions including protein synthesis and storage, carbohydrate metabolism, lipid metabolism, and detoxification.
