Microgravity spheroids reach a metabolic equilibrium after 18 days in culture and maintain this equilibrium for at least 24 days thereafter. Spheroids grown from HepG2/C3A cell line are large (ca. 0.8 – 1mm in diameter), reproducible, and show significant structural and ultrstructural similarities to human liver and differences compared to the same cells grown in the same conditions in classical tissue culture conditions. Most importantly, they are highly tissue mimetic. They are more accurate than primary human hepatocytes for predictive toxicology. They recover epigenetic markings and histone clipping seen in vivo and they display clear metabolic reprogramming.
