BACKGROUND/AIM In liver fibrosis, activated hepatic stellate cells (HSC) are transformed into myofibroblasts. Helix-loop-helix (HLH) transcriptional factors such as MyoD regulate the differentiation of myocytes, and the inhibitor of DNA binding/differentiation (Id) family comprises dominant negative HLH transcriptional regulators that inhibit… CONTINUE READING
