I hope he is still read this forum and will answer :)
anyway, my profane idea is that this scenario is not possible in vivo, but is a good tool for testing.
Good memory. I just want to ask again in light of this new research finding about BMSCs.
I think that the question was discuss in http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Hepatitis-B/Entry-inhibitors-show-promise-as-drugs/show/1570784?page=1
2. The liver stem cells, do they get infected too by HBV ?
The common thinking is NO, the satellite cells are not infectable, probably due to their lack of expression of the critical surface protein receptor gene.
Please note the infection was done in test tube. Whether the BMSC inside a human body can also be infected is still not absolute. But it does seem likely. I would like to know whether the stem cells in the liver can also be infected. A question for Studyforhope?
