Metabolic Regulation of Liver Regeneration
(2015)
Abstract
 Recovery from any serious hepatic injury depends on the liver’s intrinsic ability to regenerate. Such regeneration is also required for survival after liver tumor resection and live donor liver transplantation. Moreover, impaired
regeneration is associated with poor outcomes after acute liver injury and increased risk of
hepatocellular carcinoma in chronic liver disease. Thus, liver regeneration has been extensively investigated, with such studies identifying many physiological, cellular, and molecular mechanisms that control this process. Nevertheless, gaps remain both in knowledge about these mechanisms and in the translation of such knowledge
into improved clinical care. Thus, additional research examining the mechanisms that regulate liver regeneration is necessary.
