Ethanol consumption reduces the proteolytic capacity and protease activities of hepatic lysosomes.

Abstract

Chronic ethanol consumption causes decreased hepatic protein degradation, resulting in protein accumulation within hepatocytes. In this investigation, we sought to determine whether chronic ethanol feeding alters the degradative capacity and protease activities of isolated hepatic lysosomes. Male Sprague-Dawley-derived rats were fed a liquid diet containing… (More)
