Spontaneous peroxisome proliferation-related pleiotropic responses occurring in the liver of mice lacking peroxisomal fatty acyl-CoA oxidase (AOX-/-) are attributed to sustained activation of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPARα) by its putative natural ligands that require AOX for their metabolism. In this study, using a gene expression screen, we show that Ly-6 (lymphocyte antigen 6 complex, locus D; mouse ThB), which belongs to a distinctive family of low molecular weight phosphatidyl inositol anchored cell surface glycoproteins, is upregulated in mouse liver with peroxisome proliferation. Increases in Ly-6D mRNA levels are observed in AOX-/- mouse liver with spontaneous peroxisome proliferation and also in the liver of wild-type mice treated with synthetic peroxisome proliferators. Peroxisome proliferators failed to increase hepatic Ly-6D mRNA levels in mice lacking PPARα (PPARα-/-), suggesting a regulatory role for PPARα in the induction of Ly-6D. These observations suggest that changes in certain cell surface proteins also form part of the pleiotropic responses associated with peroxisome proliferation.

More about this publication?
  • Gene Expression, The Journal of Liver Research will publish articles in all aspects of hepatology. Hepatology, as a research discipline, has seen unprecedented growth especially in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of hepatic health and disease, which continues to have a major impact on understanding liver development, stem cells, carcinogenesis, tissue engineering, injury, repair, regeneration, immunology, metabolism, fibrosis, and transplantation. Continued research and improved understanding in these areas will have a meaningful impact on liver disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. The existing journal Gene Expression has expanded its focus to become Gene Expression, The Journal of Liver Research to meet this growing demand. In its revised and expanded scope, the journal will publish high-impact original articles, reviews, short but complete articles, and special articles (editorials, commentaries, opinions) on all aspects of hepatology, making it a unique and invaluable resource for readers interested in this field. The expanded team, led by an Editor-in-Chief who is uniquely qualified and a renowned expert, along with a dynamic and functional editorial board, is determined to make this a premier journal in the field of hepatology.
