Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) is the third most prominent cause of cancer-related death worldwide. In recent years, the well-known neurotransmitter serotonin has been shown to have considerable impact on liver regeneration and tumorigenesis. This study aims to investigate the impacts of the serotonin system in HCC through 2 drug treatment antagonists and 2 transgenic zebrafish lines.
