Genetic basis of alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
The abnormal deposition of triglycerides in the liver is known as fatty liver. While the transformationof fatty liver may occur owing to a number of factors, it is often associated either with metabolic risk factors of the ...
Epigenetic modifications of mitochondrial DNA in liver disease: focus on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
(CRC Press - Taylor & Francis Group, 2015)
The liver is a vital organ that is responsible for a wide range of functions, most of which are essential for survival. The multitude of functions the liver performs makes it vulnerable to a wide range of diseases. ...
