Here, the authors review the remarkable genetic discoveries that have illuminated the biology of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The authors integrate genes associated with NAFLD and NASH into regulatory pathways to elucidate the disease pathogenesis. They review the evidence for molecular mediators of chronic liver damage, which suggests that convergent pathophenotypes, including inflammation and fibrosis, share common genetic modifiers. They… CONTINUE READING
