Abstract

The similarity of the observed patterns of gene expression of the genes studied in mouse, rat, monkey, pig, and man suggests that they reflect a general feature of gene expression in the mammalian liver. A comparison of mouse, rat, pig, and human liver suggests that the presence of glutamine synthase-negative areas reflects the branching order of the efferent hepatic blood vessel.
