In the liver, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease: Gene mutation linked to the accumulation of fat, other lipids in the liverA team of scientists from the University of Utah and the University of California at San Francisco has discovered that the mutation of a gene encoding ketone bodies transporters solves accumulation of fat and other lipids in liver of zebrafish.

‘.. Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease or abnormally high accumulation of lipids in the liver, the most common cause of chronic liver disease worldwide.

Neurotrophin receptor tyrosine kinase type I is responsive to nerve growth factor and plays a crucial role in the development of the nervous system. Mutated TrkA has been associated with many human cancers, including colon, thyroid and prostate cancer. However, previous studies have suggested that TrkA acts as a tumor suppressor in NB. Andrew R. Mackay and colleagues at the University of L’Aquila in Italy, a previously undiscovered variant of TrkA, called TrkIII, the oncogenic properties in human NB cells. TrkIII levels are elevated in advanced stage NB tumors. Continue reading
