- Lack of guanylate cyclase C results in increased mortality in mice following liver injuryElizabeth A Mann
Division of Gastroenterology, Cincinnati Children s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH, USA
BMC Gastroenterol 10:86. 2010..In the adult rat liver, GC-C expression is increased in response to injury. We hypothesized that GC-C is required for repair/recovery from liver injury...
