Parenchymal liver cells are terminally differentiated cells that will 
not proliferate in culture unless stimulated with mitogens. There are 
several problems in keeping these cells in culture. It 
might be better to do a literature search on the subject first using 
primary hepatocyte culture as keyword and then ask more specific questions.
