Liver repair is key to resuming homeostasis and preventing fibrogenesis as well as other liver diseases. Farnesoid X receptor (FXR, NR1H4) is an emerging liver metabolic regulator and cell protector. Here we show that FXR is essential to promote liver repair after carbon tetrachloride (CCl(4))-induced injury. Expression of hepatic FXR in wild-type mice was strongly suppressed by CCl(4) treatment, and bile acid homeostasis was disrupted. Liver injury was induced in both wild-type and FXR… CONTINUE READING
