Hyaluronan Today Liver and Glycosylation , Preface / Eiji Miyoshi  Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine NEW
The liver is the largest organ in the human body. It weighs approximately 1,500 grams and consists of 250 billion cells, including hepatocytes (70-80%) and nonparenchymal cells (20-30%). The biological function of hepatocytes is production of serum proteins, lipid/glucose metabolism, detoxification, and production of bile.  ...and more

Hyaluronan Today Microheterogeneity of carbohydrate chain on AFP: update on AFP-L3 as a biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma / Shinji Satomura  Osaka University Graduate School of Medicine NEW
α-Fetoprotein (AFP) was discovered by Abelev et al. in 1963 and its concentration was found to be elevated in serum of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) by Alpert et al. in 1971. AFP is produced by normal liver of fetus. Concentration of AFP in fetus blood is very high. It is replaced by albumin several weeks after birth.  ...and more
