ZHX2 promotes liver recovery after acute liver injury
Nov. 27, 2023
Dysfunction in the mitochondria contributes to the development of acute liver injury (ALI). There is emerging evidence indicating the mitochondria is key to maintain liver homeostasis and survival; thus, controlling its functioning is important for the treatment of liver diseases. Recent findings have identified transcription factor zinc-finger and homeoboxes 2 (ZHX2) to be a critical modulator of liver postnatal gene expression, cell proliferation and lipid homeostasis in the liver.
