The immunology of fibrogenesis in alcoholic liver disease

, : The immunology of fibrogenesis in alcoholic liver disease. Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine 128(11): 1230-1238

Context.-Alcoholic liver disease in humans frequently leads to cirrhosis. Experimental models of hepatic fibrogenesis are available, but extrapolation of those findings to human ethanol-induced liver injury is difficult. Hepatic ethanol-induced fibrosis in humans has often been studied in relatively small patient populations.

L-Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) from Lactobacillus pentosus is a non-allosteric enzyme, which shows, however, high sequence similarity to allosteric LDHs from certain bacteria. To elucidate the structural basis of the absence of allostery of L. pent...
