Abstract

The functional ability of hepatic stimulatory substance (HSS)-stimulated proliferating hepatocytes was investigated by intrasplenic and/or intraportal transplantation in ascorbic acid (AsA) biosynthetic enzyme-deficient (ODS-od/od) rats that die of osteogenic disorders unless there is AsA supplementation. HSS was extracted from regenerating porcine livers. Hepatocytes isolated from the livers of congeneic ODS-+/+ rats that are capable of synthesizing AsA were transplanted into the spleen (Sp-HTx) and/or the portal vein (Pv-HTx) of ODS-od/od rats. The recipients were divided into eight groups as follows: HSS-untreated groups [group Ia, sham-operated, HTx(-); group IIa, Sp-HTx; group IIIa, Pv-HTx; and group IVa, Sp-and Pv-HTx], HSS-treated groups [group Ib, HSSonly; group IIb, Sp-HTx + HSS; group IIIb, Pv-HTx + HSS; and group IVb, Sp-and Pv-HTx + HSS]. The recipients were given a diet and water containing AsA for 6 weeks after HTx, and AsA supplementation was then halted. The average bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) labeling index (LI) and hepatocyte-occupied ratio in the spleen (WS ratio) of HSS-treated rats were significantly higher than those of HSS-untreated rats. All the rats in HSS-untreated groups and group Ib died by 8 weeks after the cessation of AsA. In HSS-treated groups IIb, IIIb, and IVb, the survival rates were 60%, 50%, and 80%, respectively, at 16 weeks after HTx. The average serum AsA level of the surviving rats in groups IIb, IIIb, and IVb was significantly higher than that in HSS-untreated groups. These results indicate that HSS treatment induced rapid proliferation of transplanted hepatocytes in the spleen and the portal vein, and that these proliferating hepatocytes synthesized AsA and improved the survival rate of ODS-od/od rats.
