Findings obtained from our recent studies have demonstrated that malondialdehyde, a product of lipid peroxidation, and acetaldehyde can react together with proteins in a synergistic manner and form hybrid protein conjugates, which have been designated as malondialdehyde-acetaldehyde (MAA)-protein adducts. These adducts have been detected in livers of(More)
Previous studies from our laboratory have shown that malondialdehyde-acetaldehyde-protein adducts (MAA adducts) are formed in hepatocytes of ethanol-fed rats and directly influence the hepatic stellate cells (HSCs) to induce their secretion of chemokines and to up-regulate their expression of adhesion molecules. Since protein kinase C (PKC) is known to play(More)
