Abstract

Chimeric mice with humanized liver were first established by transplanting primary human hepatocytes (PHHs) isolated from a Japanese 27-year-old donor into complementary DNA-urokinase-type plasminogen activator/severe combined immunodeficiency mice. The PHHs from the Japanese donor increased more than 100-fold in the mouse liver, and human hepatocytes purified from the chimeric mouse liver (hcPHs) were successfully transplanted into second-passaged mice. These PHHs and hcPHs can produce human albumin and preserve many liver-specific enzyme genes, which are important for liver function. Interestingly, hepatitis B virus can be infected with these chimeric mice; hepatitis B viral DNA and hepatitis B surface antigen levels were detectable. In conclusion, hcPHs can be an ideal cell source for analysis of human hepatocytes.
