Schematic showing the use of lineage tracing to study hepatocyte EMT. The upper left shows the two crosses required to generate the triple transgenic mice used by Taura et al. (12). The group carried out three experiments using these animals, #1 with cells isolated from normal livers and #s 2 and 3 with cells and tissues, respectively, from fibrotic livers. The predicted findings in the absence or presence of EMT are shown; the actual findings of Taura et al. are indicated in red, illustrating that there was no EMT observed in the fibrosis model. Aqua indicates cells co-expressing β-galactosidase and GFP, consistent with EMT having occurred. Not shown is the heterogeneity in hepatocyte labeling with β-galactosidase
