Description

The biochemical differences between simple steatosis, a benign liver disease, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, which leads to cirrhosis, are unclear. Fat aussie is an obese mouse strain with a truncating mutation (foz) in the Alms1 gene. Chow-fed female foz/foz mice develop obesity, diabetes, and simple steatosis. We fed foz/foz and wildtype mice a high-fat diet. Foz/foz mice developed serum ALT elevation and severe steatohepatitis with hepatocyte ballooning, inflammation, and fibrosis;...[Show more]
