Title Impaired liver regeneration in Nrf2 knockout mice caused by ROS-mediated insulin/IGF-1 resistance
Organism Mus musculus
Experiment type Expression profiling by array
Summary The liver is frequently challenged by surgery-induced metabolic overload, viruses, or toxins, which induce the formation of reactive oxygen species. To determine the effect of oxidative stress on liver regeneration and to identify the underlying signalling pathways, we studied liver repair in mice lacking the Nrf2 transcription factor. In these animals, expression of several cytoprotective enzymes was reduced in hepatocytes, resulting in oxidative stress. As a consequence, tissue damage was aggravated, and liver regeneration after partial hepatectomy was delayed.
Using in vitro and in vivo studies we identified oxidative stress-induced insulin/insulin-like growth factor resistance as the underlying mechanism. This deficiency impaired the activation of p38 mitogen-activated kinase, Akt kinase, and downstream targets after hepatectomy, resulting in enhanced death and delayed proliferation of hepatocytes. Our results reveal novel roles of Nrf2 in the regulation of growth factor signalling and in tissue repair. In addition, they provide new insight into the mechanisms underlying oxidative stress-induced defects in liver regeneration and thus offer new avenues to improve regeneration in patients with acute or chronic liver damage.
