Mouse Models of Liver Parenchyma Injuries and Regeneration.

Front Cell Dev Biol 2022 5;10:903740. Epub 2022 May 5.

Department of General Surgery, Ji'an Hospital, Shanghai East Hospital, School of Medicine, Tongji University, Ji'an, China.

Mice have genetic and physiological similarities with humans and a well-characterized genetic background that is easy to manipulate. Murine models have become the most favored, robust mammalian systems for experimental analyses of biological processes and disease conditions due to their low cost, rapid reproduction, a wealth of mouse strains with defined genetic conditions (both native ones as well as ones established experimentally), and high reproducibility with respect to that which can be done in experimental studies. In this review, we focus on murine models for liver, an organ with renown regenerative capacity and the organ most central to systemic, complex metabolic and physiological functions for mammalian hosts.

Front Immunol 2022 3;13:899609. Epub 2022 Jun 3.

Department of Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology, University of South Carolina School of Medicine, Columbia, SC, United States.

The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) is a ubiquitously expressed ligand-activated transcription factor. While initially identified as an environmental sensor, this receptor has been shown more recently to regulate a variety of immune functions. AhR ligands vary in structure and source from environmental chemicals such as 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) and indoles found in cruciferous vegetables to endogenous ligands derived from tryptophan metabolism.

Challenges and Future of Drug-Induced Liver Injury Research-Laboratory Tests.

Int J Mol Sci 2022 May 27;23(11). Epub 2022 May 27.

Department of Medicine II, Liver Centre Munich, LMU Klinikum Munich, 81377 Munich, Germany.

Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is a rare but potentially severe adverse drug event, which is also a major cause of study cessation and market withdrawal during drug development. Since no acknowledged diagnostic tests are available, DILI diagnosis poses a major challenge both in clinical practice as well as in pharmacovigilance. Differentiation from other liver diseases and the identification of the causative agent in the case of polymedication are the main issues that clinicians and drug developers face in this regard.

Dual-readout immunosensor based on multifunctional MXene probe triggers the signal amplification for detection of autoimmune hepatitis marker.

Mikrochim Acta 2022 06 9;189(7):248. Epub 2022 Jun 9.

College of Chemistry and Material, Fujian Normal University, Fuzhou, 350108, Fujian, China.

A dual-readout immunosensor coupled with electrochemical impedance and temperature signal was successfully proposed to detect autoimmune hepatitis markers (ASGPR). NbC MXene with excellent conductivity, abundant surface functional groups, and extraordinary photothermal conversion efficiency, was designed to be a multifunctional biological probe, whose specific binding with antigen enhanced steric hindrance to generate electrochemical impedance signal, and at the same time, it had a strong optical response in the near-infrared band to achieve temperature output. In addition, poly(N-isopropyl acrylamide) (PNIPAM) was a temperature-sensitive polymer, which was adopted as the sensing matrix. Read More
