Isolation of Liver Kupffer Cells (Matthias Froh, Akira Konno, Ronald G. Thurman, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, North Carolina). Kupffer cells, the resident macrophages of the liver, play a major role in the pathogenesis of several diseases. This unit contains an easy-to-follow procedure for effective isolation of liver Kupffer cells from rats and mice. The protocol provides viable Kupffer cells in large amounts that can be used for further investigations.
