The Scientist: Liver Regeneration

August 1, 2016

 

I was commissioned by The Scientist Magazine to create an illustration that accurately described the process of liver regeneration.

Description:

Liver injury causes ATP to be released from the cell, as shown in step A. This then activates the macrophages which are sent to the injured site of the liver in step B, making contact with the hyaluronan on the liver cell which causes a cascade that releases the DNA of dead liver cells to the mesothelium, which regenerates the injured area.
