The molecular mechanisms that drive irreversible acute liver failure remain poorly characterized. Here, the authors show that the recently discovered platelet receptor CLEC-2 (C-type lectin-like receptor) perpetuates and worsens liver damage during acute liver injury by blocking restorative neutrophil driven inflammation.
In an adult mouse model of tyrosinaemia, a base editor correcting an A-to-G splice-site mutation in the Fah gene restores the translation of the functional enzyme, promoting the repopulation of the liver with the corrected cells.
