Abstract 

An inhibitor of the proliferation of hepatic stellate cells (HSC) was purified from rat liver by a combination of gel filtration and ion exchange chromatography. The molecular mass of this non-arginase growth inhibitory factor (NAGIF) was determined to be 38 kDa by sodium dodecyl sulfate- polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and gel filtration. The proliferation of HSC was inhibited by NAGIF with a 50% inhibitory dose of 5 nmol/liter. The inhibitory activity of NAGIF was not limited to HSC but also affected the growth of bovine endothelial cells and 3T6 fibroblasts. However, the growth of B16 mouse melanoma was not inhibited by NAGIF. The NH2-terminal sequence of NAGIF, AEPVEPWS, is identical to an internal sequence of rat Zn-α2- glycoprotein. Although the action mode of this inhibitor remains to be investigated, it seems very likely that NAGIF is involved in the negative control mechanism of HSC growth.
