Abstract

Non-alcoholic-fatty-liver disease (NAFLD) is part of the metabolic syndrome. The spectrum of NAFLD includes NASH (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis), which is characterized by progressive inflammation associated with oxidative stress and apoptosis finally triggering liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. HGF (hepatocyte growth factor)/mesenchymal-epithelial transition factor (c-Met) receptor signaling is known to activate distinct intracellular pathways mediating among others anti-apoptotic properties to hepatocytes. Therefore, the aim was to characterize the role of c-met during NASH development.
