    ..5 h after 2/3 partial hepatectomy, reaching a maximum at 2 h. This gene is similar to human alpha-1-beta-glycoprotein (40%). These results suggest a role of these genes in the early response phase of liver regeneration. ..

    ..Up-regulation of the messenger RNA by continuous exposure to GH, but not to the male-characteristic intermittent exposure, was demonstrated in hypophysectomized rats and in cultured primary hepatocytes. ..

    ..Because of its internal duplication and its sequence homology to immunoglobulin-like proteins, alpha 1B appears to have evolved from an ancestral gene similar to that of the immunoglobulin supergene family. ..
