Sterile liver inflammation, such as liver ischemia-reperfusion, hemorrhagic shock after trauma, and drug-induced liver injury, is initiated and regulated by endogenous mediators including DNA and reactive oxygen species. Here, we identify a mechanism for redox-mediated regulation of absent in melanoma 2 (AIM2) inflammasome activation in hepatocytes after(More)
Extracellular HMGB1 (disulfide form), via activation of Toll-Like-Receptor (TLR4)-dependent signaling, is a strong driver of pathologic inflammation in both acute and chronic conditions. Identification of selective inhibitors of HMGB1-TLR4 signaling could offer novel therapies that selectively target proximal endogenous activators of inflammation. A(More)
The quasispecies nature of hepatitis C virus genome distribution is most evident in hypervariable regions of the putative envelope 2 domain. Eight patients with chronic hepatitis C treated with interferon-alpha were studied as to heterogeneity of the hypervariable regions to clarify the implications of quasispecies. More than 10 recombinant clones generated(More)
