BACKGROUND & AIMS How benign liver steatosis progresses to non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), fibrosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains elusive. NASH progression entails diverse pathogenic mechanisms and relies on complex cross-talk between multiple tissues such as the gut, adipose tissues, liver and the brain. Using a hyperphagic mouse fed with Western diet (WD), we aimed to elucidate the cross-talk and kinetics of hepatic and extra-hepatic alterations during NASH-HCC progression as well as regression. METHODS Hyperphagic mice lacking a functional Alms1 gene (Foz/Foz), and WT littermates were fed WD or standard chow for 12w for NASH/fibrosis and 24w for HCC development. NASH regression was modeled by switching back to normal chow after NASH development. RESULTS Foz+WD mice were steatotic within 1-2w, developed NASH by 4w, and grade 3 fibrosis by 12w, accompanied by chronic kidney injury. Foz+WD mice that continued on WD progressed to cirrhosis and HCC within 24w and had reduced survival due to cardiac dysfunction. However, NASH mice that were switched to normal chow showed NASH regression, improved survival and did not develop HCC. Transcriptomic and histological analyses of Foz/Foz NASH liver showed strong concordance with human NASH. NASH was preceded by an early disruption of gut barrier, microbial dysbiosis, LPS leakage and intestinal inflammation. This led to acute phase liver inflammation in Foz+WD mice, characterized by neutrophil infiltration and increased levels of several chemokines/cytokines. The liver cytokine/chemokine profile evolved as NASH progressed with subsequent predominance by monocyte recruitment. CONCLUSIONS Foz+WD model closely mimics the pathobiology and gene signature of human NASH with fibrosis and subsequent HCC. Foz+WD mice provide a robust and relevant preclinical model of NASH, NASH associated HCC, chronic kidney injury, and heart failure.

Detection of community structure has become a fundamental step in the analysis of biological networks with application to protein function annotation, disease gene prediction, and drug discovery. This recent impact creates a need to make these techniques and their accompanying visualization schemes available to a broad range of biologists. Here we present a service-oriented, end-to-end software framework, CDAPS (Community Detection APplication and Service), that integrates the identification, an...
Abstract: Background & Aims Studies are needed to determine the long-term effects of bariatric surgery for patients with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). We evaluated sequential liver biopsies, collected the time of bariatric surgery and 1 and 5 years later, to assess the long-term effects of bariatric surgery in patients with NASH. Methods We performed a prospective study of 180 severely obese patients with biopsy-proven NASH, defined by the NASH clinical research network histologic scores....

: Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease encompasses a spectrum of diseases ranging from simple steatosis to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), cirrhosis, and liver cancer. At present, how simple steatosis progresses to NASH remains obscure and effective pharmacological therapies are lacking. Hepatic expression of C-X-C motif chemokine ligand 1 (CXCL1), a key chemokine for neutrophil infiltration (a hallmark of NASH), is highly elevated in NASH patients but not in fatty livers in obese individuals o...

Introduction: Alstrom syndrome is a rare recessive genetic disease caused by mutations in ALMS1, which encodes a protein that is related to cilia function and intracellular endosome trafficking. The syndrome has been linked to impaired glucose metabolism and CKD. Polymorphisms in Alms1 have likewise been linked to CKD, but little is known about the modification of the phenotype by environmental factors. Methods: To gain further insights, the fat aussie (foz) mouse strain, a genetic murine model ...

Many tools for dealing with compositional ' 'omics' data produce feature-wise values that can be ranked in order to describe features' associations with some sort of variation. These values include differentials (which describe features' associations with specified covariates) and feature loadings (which describe features' associations with variation along a given axis in a biplot). Although prior work has discussed the use of these 'rankings' as a starting point for exploring the log-ratios of ...

Abstract Circadian clock proteins are endogenous timing mechanisms that control the transcription of hundreds of genes. Their integral role in coordinating metabolism has led to their scrutiny in a number of diseases, including NAFLD. Discoordination between central and peripheral circadian rhythms is a core feature of nearly every genetic, dietary, or environmental model of metabolic syndrome and NAFLD. Restricting feeding to a defined daily interval (time-restricted feeding) can synchronize th...

Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) is a leading cause of cirrhosis in the United States, which is characterized by extensive deposition of extracellular matrix proteins and formation of a fibrous scar. Hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) are the major source of collagen type 1 producing myofibroblasts in ALD fibrosis. However, the mechanism of alcohol-induced activation of human and mouse HSCs is not fully understood. We compared the gene-expression profiles of primary cultured human HSCs (hHSCs) isolated ...

Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), identified in the early years of this century as a new class of leukocyte family unlike the B or T lymphocytes, play a unique role bridging the innate and adaptive immune responses in mucosal immunity. Their origin, differentiation, and activation process and functions have caught global interest. Recently, accumulating evidence supports that ILCs are vital regulators for gastrointestinal mucosal homeostasis through interactions with other structural and stromal cel...

: WebGestalt is a popular tool for the interpretation of gene lists derived from large scale -omics studies. In the 2019 update, WebGestalt supports 12 organisms, 342 gene identifiers and 155 175 functional categories, as well as user-uploaded functional databases. To address the growing and unique need for phosphoproteomics data interpretation, we have implemented phosphosite set analysis to identify important kinases from phosphoproteomics data. We have completely redesigned result visualizati...
