BACKGROUND & AIMS Autophagy is a metabolic process that degrades and recycles intracellular organelles and proteins with many connections to human disease and physiology. We studied the role of autophagy during hepatic stellate cell (HSC) activation, a key event in liver fibrogenesis. METHODS Analysis of the autophagic flux during in vitro activation of… CONTINUE READING
