Liver Genetics

Liver is the primary organ for the detoxification, as well as being the target of many of environmental chemicals. Most common liver diseases are caused by a combination of environmental factors and genetic background. Inherited diseases are the genetic disorders of liver. More than 100 liver diseases are genetically inherited. Some disease symptoms may be present in parents; other parents may have no symptoms, but their children may have the disease. Hereditary hemochromatosis is the most common genetic liver disorder. This section discusses new concepts in the genetics and inherited liver diseases with disease pathogenesis and novel therapeutic options. Hepatocytes are metabolic super-achievers in the body which play critical role in synthesizing molecules. Hepatocytes house many different metabolic pathways.
