Inflammasomes in the gastrointestinal tract: infection, cancer and gut microbiota homeostasis

Latest Reviews

  • Nat Rev Gastroentero | Review Article |

    The liver is a key metabolic organ, and alterations to hepatic metabolism are important for the development of disease. In this Review, the authors explore the central roles of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ coactivators (PGC1s) in physiological and pathophysiological settings, with a focus on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and liver cancer.

    The pathophysiology of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis is not yet completely understood but innate immunity is a major factor. In this Review, the evidence for macrophage involvement in the development of liver steatosis, inflammation and fibrosis is discussed.

    The Wnt–β-catenin pathway is a highly conserved pathway that regulates embryogenesis and key regenerative processes in adult organs. Here, the authors discuss the role of Wnt–β-catenin signalling in liver development and disease, including in liver cancer, NAFLD and liver fibrosis.

    Redox signalling in the gastrointestinal mucosa is held in an intricate balance. This Review addresses both the spectrum and intensity of redox activity pertaining to host–immune and host–microbiota crosstalk during homeostasis and disease processes in the gastrointestinal tract.
