Signaling Pathways in Liver Diseases by G. Ramadori, Pierluigi Ramadori (auth.), Jean-Francois

By G. Ramadori, Pierluigi Ramadori (auth.), Jean-Francois Dufour, Pierre-Alain Clavien (eds.)

Signaling Pathways in Liver ailments, 2d edition specializes in signaling pathways that are relatively vital in liver ailments. contemporary development introduced hepatology to new frontiers. The expanding frequency of surgical procedure on steatotic and cirrhotic liver obliges liver surgeons and hepatologists to appreciate the molecular mechanisms at play in those occasions and the way they are often stimulated. greater comprehension of the mobile mechanisms partaking in liver regeneration, hepato-cellular apoptosis and ischemia/reperfusion inquiry is reflected by means of a dramatic bring up in complexity. The quantity and scope of guides is intimidating and tough for busy participants to extract a coherent framework. This e-book will function a resource of data facilitating the interpreting of the literature and the making plans of trials. Translational drugs implies wisdom of the molecular objectives for novel healing suggestions. it is going to additionally stimulate extra learn and result in higher alternate among the laboratory, the scientific ward and the operation room.

Example text

Cytosolic Ca2+ Phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PIP2) is a membrane lipid that is a substrate for PLC. Once it has been activated by a specific class of G protein-coupled receptors, PLC cleaves PIP2 into two signaling molecules, DAG and InsP3. DAG is lipophilic and remains at the membrane, where it activates PKC. InsP3 is a water-soluble molecule that diffuses through the cytosol to interact with the InsP3R, which stimulates the release of Ca2+ from intracellular Ca2+ stores into the cytosol.

The p44/p42 MAPK signaling cascade can be activated by mitogenic stimulation of nonmalignant human cholangiocytes, although the p38 MAPK pathway is activated by mitogenic stimulation of malignant but not nonmalignant cholangiocytes. p38 MAPK signaling affects the growth of malignant cholangiocytes by dysregulation of the eukaryotic initiation factor, eIF-4E [108]. The eIF-4E is known to bind the cap structure of eukaryotic messenger RNAs, mediating the recruitment of ribosomes to messenger RNA, a rate-liming step for translation [108].
