How a common drug causes liver failure

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

High doses of acetaminophen can damage the liver. Researchers have found a new mechanism by which an acetaminophen breakdown product can impair liver proteins. The compound activates a protein modification pathway called glutathionylation. The finding explains how the compound can damage even proteins it doesn't bind to directly.
