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.

Big Data Studies Scrutinize Links Between Fatty Liver Disease and How Cells Make Energy

American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)

Three recent studies dig into how nonalcoholic fatty liver disease affects mitochondria in the liver: how mitochondrial energy production stutters and fails as the disease progresses, and how this affects the organ’s use of nutrients to produce energy.
