Abstract

A long-term hepatocyte culture maintaining liver-specific functions is very essential for both basic research and the development of bioartificial liver devices in clinical application. However, primary hepatocytes rapidly lose their proliferation and hepatic functions over a few days in culture. This work is to establish an ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency (OTCD) patient-derived primary human hepatocyte (OTCD-PHH) culture with hepatic functions for providing an in vitro cell model. Liver tissue from an infant with OTCD was dispersed into single cells. The cells were cultured using conditional reprogramming. To characterize the cells, we assessed activities and mRNA expression of CYP3A4, 1A1, 2C9, as well as albumin and urea secretion. We found that the OTCD-PHH can be subpassaged for more than 15 passages. The cells do not express mRNA of fibroblast-specific maker, whereas they highly express markers of epithelial cells and hepatocytes. In addition, the OTCD-PHH retain native CYP3A4, 1A1, 2C9 activities and albumin secretion function at early passages. The OTCD-PHH at passages 2, 6, 9 and 13 have identical DNA fingerprint as the original tissue. Furthermore, under 3D culture environment, low urea production and hepatocyte marker staining of the OTCD-PHH were detected. The established OTCD-PHH maintain liver-specific functions at early passages and can be long-term cultured in vitro. We believe the established long-term OTCD-PHH culture is highly relevant to study liver diseases, particularly in infants with OTCD.
