A complete list of the human tissue specimens obtained from embryos, fetuses and adults. Crown Rump Lengths measured on the aborted specimens were used for estimation of their gestational ages. *Adult liver tissue originated from one unused donor liver or from non-involved areas of livers resected for metastatic colorectal disease or with primary hepatocellular carcinomas.
