Under normal feeding conditions, oxidative stress stimulates lipid droplets accumulation in hepatocytes. We found that, despite the low visceral fat in Sod1-knockout (KO) mouse, lipid droplets accumulate in the liver to a greater extent than for the wild-type mouse upon fasting. Liver damage became evident in the KO mice. While fasting caused substantial(More)
We investigated the responses of mice that are defective in the superoxide-scavenging enzyme SOD1 to thioacetamide (TAA)-induced hepatotoxicity. When a lethal dose of TAA (500 mg/kg) was intraperitoneally injected, the wild-type (WT) mice all died within 36 h, but all of the SOD1-knockout (KO) mice survived. Treatment with an SOD1 inhibitor rendered the WT(More)
