Bin Dong et al.
Journal of lipid research, 58(2), 350-363 (2016-12-13)
The farnesoid X receptor (FXR) plays critical roles in plasma cholesterol metabolism, in particular HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) homeostasis. Obeticholic acid (OCA) is a FXR agonist being developed for treating various chronic liver diseases. Previous studies reported inconsistent effects of OCA on
Moazameh Golshani et al.
AIMS neuroscience, 6(2), 43-53 (2020-04-29)
Hepatic encephalopathy (HE) is a brain disorder as a result of liver failure. Previous studies have indicated that erythropoietin (EPO) has neuroprotective effects in different neurological diseases. This study addressed the therapeutic effect of a four-week treatment with EPO on
Zhi-Ming Ding et al.
Frontiers in pharmacology, 9, 410-410 (2018-05-17)
Understanding of the temporal changes of hepatic lesions in the progression and regression of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) is vital to elucidation of the pathogenesis of NASH, and critical to the development of a strategy for NASH pharmacotherapy. There are challenges
Progression and regression of hepatic lesions in a mouse model of NASH induced by dietary intervention and its implications in pharmacotherapy.

Kimberly J Jasmer et al.
Pigment cell & melanoma research, 33(6), 850-868 (2020-06-20)
Biosynthesis and degradation of heme, an iron-bound protoporphyrin molecule utilized by a wide variety of metabolic processes, are tightly regulated. Two closely related enzymes, heme oxygenase 1 (HMOX1) and heme oxygenase 2 (HMOX2), degrade free heme to produce carbon monoxide
Morgane M Thibaut et al.
Journal of cachexia, sarcopenia and muscle, 12(1), 70-90 (2020-12-23)
Cancer cachexia is a debilitating metabolic syndrome contributing to cancer death. Organs other than the muscle may contribute to the pathogenesis of cancer cachexia. This work explores new mechanisms underlying hepatic alterations in cancer cachexia. We used transcriptomics to reveal
Guang Yang et al.
Tissue engineering. Part A, 26(23-24), 1369-1377 (2020-10-16)
Liver disease and the subsequent loss of liver function is an enormous clinical challenge. A severe shortage of donor liver tissue greatly limits patients' options for a timely transplantation. Tissue engineering approaches offer a promising alternative to organ transplantation by
Wei Wang et al.
The Journal of pathology, 254(3), 289-302 (2021-04-27)
Polycystic liver disease (PLD) is characterized by the growth of numerous biliary cysts and presents in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), causing significant morbidity. Interestingly, deletion of intraflagellar transport-B (IFT-B) complex genes in adult mouse models of

American journal of physiology. Heart and circulatory physiology, 308(11), H1402-H1413 (2015-03-31)
The present study examined the heme oxygenase (HO) system in an in vivo murine model of pathological shear stress induced by partial carotid artery ligation. In this model, along with upregulation of vasculopathic genes, HO-1 is induced in the endothelium
Lucas-Sebastian Spitzhorn et al.
Stem cells and development, 27(24), 1702-1714 (2018-10-04)
Gunn rats bear a mutation within the uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase-1a1 (Ugt1a1) gene resulting in high serum bilirubin levels as seen in Crigler-Najjar syndrome. In this study, the Gunn rat was used as an animal model for heritable liver dysfunction. Induced

BMB reports, 53(3), 148-153 (2019-08-14)
Erythropoietin and iron have individually shown beneficial effects on early-phase liver regeneration following partial hepatectomy (PHx); however, there are limited data on the combined effect on late-phase liver regeneration after PHx. Here we examined combined effects of recombinant human erythropoietin
Yetao Xu et al.
Cell reports, 30(5), 1310-1318 (2020-02-06)
Pathological activation of TGF-β signaling is universal in fibrosis. Aberrant TGF-β signaling in conjunction with transdifferentiation of hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) into fibrogenic myofibroblasts plays a central role in liver fibrosis. Here we report that the DNA demethylase TET3 is
Doaa I Mohamed et al.
Pharmaceuticals (Basel, Switzerland), 15(7) (2022-07-28)
Acute heart failure (AHF) is one of the most common diseases in old age that can lead to mortality. Systemic hypoperfusion is associated with hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury, which may be irreversible. Ischemic hepatitis due to AHF has been linked to
Regulation of lipid metabolism by obeticholic acid in hyperlipidemic hamsters.

David A Hanna et al.
The Journal of biological chemistry, 298(2), 101549-101549 (2022-01-02)
Heme oxygenases (HOs) detoxify heme by oxidatively degrading it into carbon monoxide, iron, and biliverdin, which is reduced to bilirubin and excreted. Humans express two isoforms of HO: the inducible HO-1, which is upregulated in response to excess heme and

Liver kinase B 1 (LKB1 or STK11) and PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homologue deleted on chromosome 10) are two tumor suppressors that regulate the mTOR signaling pathway. Deletion studies show that loss of either Lkb1 (Lkb+/- ) or Pten (PtenloxP/loxP;
