Bioactive Brief: Targeting Hepatic PPAR Gamma Signaling To Treat Alcoholic Liver Disease

May 05, 2016

A certain signaling pathway in the liver has been identified as a factor in the progression of alcoholic liver disease, report scientists from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro’s Center for Translational Biomedical Research at the NC Research Campus. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) signaling governs several processes in the body tissues such as […]
