Morphological evaluation of humanized chimeric mouse livers from the PhoenixBio® (uPA+/+/SCID) mouse model show robust replacement and expansion with human hepatocytes, however areas of human hepatocytes had prominent steatosis and a variable lack of sinusoids which was consistent with decreased hepatocellular perfusion and lacked bile canalicular formation between human and mouse hepatocytes.
