Hepatocyte-Specific Phgdh-Deficient Mice Culminate in Mild Obesity, Insulin Resistance, and Enhanced Vulnerability to Protein Starvation
TLDR
Observations demonstrate that Phgdh-dependent de novo Ser synthesis in liver hepatocytes contributes to the maintenance of systemic glucose tolerance, suppression of inflammatory response, and resistance to protein starvation.
Exogenous and Endogenous Serine Deficiency Exacerbates Hepatic Lipid Accumulation
TLDR
The collective results indicate that NCT-503 supplementation may contribute to overaccumulation of hepatic lipid, by causing hepatic serine deficiency, while dietary Serine deficiency may produce similar outcomes by affecting the gut-microbiota-liver axis.
The role of SHMT2 in modulating lipid metabolism in hepatocytes via glycine-mediated mTOR activation.
Serine hydroxymethyltransferase 2 (SHMT2) converts serine into glycine in the mitochondrial matrix, transferring a methyl group to tetrahydrofolate. SHMT2 plays an important role in the maintenance
SNX10-mediated degradation of LAMP2A by NSAIDs inhibits chaperone-mediated autophagy and induces hepatic lipid accumulation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that NSAIDs induced SNX10- and CTSA-dependent degradation of LAMP2A, thereby leading to the suppression of CMA, thus leading to NSAID-induced steatosis and hepatotoxicity.
TMAO-Activated Hepatocyte-Derived Exosomes Are Widely Distributed in Mice with Different Patterns and Promote Vascular Inflammation
TLDR
Clues about how TMAO may stimulate hepatocytes to produce Exos are provided and evidence that Exos secreted by TMAo-treated hepatocytes could be widely distributed in vivo and promote vascular inflammation is offered.
Cysteine Restriction-Specific Effects of Sulfur Amino Acid Restriction on Lipid Metabolism
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the anti-adiposity effects of SAAR are due to CR, which increased serinogenesis (serine biosynthesis from non-glucose substrates) by diverting substrates from glyceroneogenesis, essential for fatty acid/triglyceride cycling.
PHGDH as a mechanism for resistance in metabolically-driven cancers
TLDR
This review will investigate the role of 3-phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase in normal biological processes, leading to therole of PHGDH in the progression of cancer, and highlight the known mechanisms of resistance to cancer therapeutics facilitated by PHG DH biology.
Epigenome-wide association meta-analysis of DNA methylation with coffee and tea consumption
TLDR
It is indicated that coffee consumption is associated with differential DNA methylation levels at multiple CpGs, and that coffee-associated epigenetic variations may explain the mechanism of action of coffee consumption in conferring disease risk.

Personal model‐assisted identification of NAD+ and glutathione metabolism as intervention target in NAFLD
TLDR
Improved liver function and decreased HS after supplementation with serine (a precursor to glycine) is found in a proof‐of‐concept human study and a strategy for NAFLD treatment is proposed.
Regressive Effect of Myricetin on Hepatic Steatosis in Mice Fed a High-Fat Diet
TLDR
The data indicated that myricetin might represent an effective therapeutic agent to treat HFD-induced hepatic steatosis via activating the Nrf2 pathway and the PPAR signaling pathway.
Susceptibility of Nrf2-Null Mice to Steatohepatitis and Cirrhosis upon Consumption of a High-Fat Diet Is Associated with Oxidative Stress, Perturbation of the Unfolded Protein Response, and Disturbance in the Expression of Metabolic Enzymes but Not with Insulin Resistance
TLDR
Nrf2 protects against NASH by suppressing lipogenesis, supporting mitochondrial function, increasing the threshold for the UPR and inflammation, and enabling adaptation to HF-diet-induced oxidative stress.
Loss of Nrf2 markedly exacerbates nonalcoholic steatohepatitis.
L-serine supplementation attenuates alcoholic fatty liver by enhancing homocysteine metabolism in mice and rats.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that L-Serine ameliorates alcoholic fatty liver by accelerating L-serine-dependent homocysteine metabolism.
Molecular mechanisms of hepatic lipid accumulation in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
TLDR
This narrative review investigates the molecular mechanisms of hepatic steatosis in NAFLD, focusing on the four major pathways contributing to lipid homeostasis in the liver.
Oral supplementation with l-aspartate and l-glutamate inhibits atherogenesis and fatty liver disease in cholesterol-fed rabbit
TLDR
Oral supplementation with l-aspartate and l-glutamate inhibits the progression of atherogenesis and the development of fatty liver disease in the animal model of cholesterol-fed rabbit and reflects the limited elevation of serum γ-GT activity.
