The HepaRG cell line

HepaRG are terminally differentiated hepatocellular cells that were isolated from a donor afflicted with cholangiocarcinoma

The novelty of the work performed by INSERM and Biopredic International scientists has been to recognize their uniqueness and determine optimum culture conditions to support either growth or function as differentiated, adult hepatic cells.
HepaRG™ cells carry properties of early hepatic progenitor cells as well as mature hepatocytes, each condition allowing for uses of the cells that are unmatched. 
For example, HepaRG™ in the growth state tolerate infection by certain viruses which rarely enter differentiated, adult hepatocytes.
