Abstract: AbstractAlthough alcoholic liver disease is clinically well-described, the molecular basis for alcohol-induced hepatotoxicity is not well understood. Previously, we determined that the clathrin-mediated internalization of asialoglycoprotein receptor was impaired in ethanol-treated WIF-B cells whereas the internalization of a glycophosphatidylinositol-anchored protein thought to be endocytosed via a caveolae/raft-mediated pathway was not changed suggesting that clathrin-mediated endocytosis is selectively impa…
