Pancreatic stellate and stem cells

It is a type of pluripotent cell located between pancreatic lobules and the surrounding area of acinars.  The PSC functions in various pancreatic diseases are based on biological characteristics of pancreatic stem cells and provide a novel insight for PSC targeted therapy. Proliferation is induced by activated pancreatic stem cells that migrate from sites of damaged tissues, to contract and possibly phagocytose, and to synthesize ECM components to promote tissue repair.
