Maintenance of liver mass following CCl 4 . Analysis of the liver mass (expressed as the wet liver weight as a percentage of the body weight) shows a mild increase in all genotypes 2 days after CCl4 administration, followed by a trend toward baseline levels by 14 days, except for livers of uPA° mice which continue to display a mass that is similar to day 2 (and higher than before CCl4, *P < 0.03). WT = wild type.
