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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
