These studies also showed that obese mice with fatty liver clear endotoxin less than nonobese controls . This additional stressor is sometimes referred to as a “second hit” in a paradigm that identifies the accumulation of fat as the “first hit” . Possible candidates for the second hit include increased oxidative stress, lipid peroxidation and release of toxic products such as malondialdehyde and 4-hydroxynonenal, decreased antioxidants, Pathophysiology of NASH 19 adipocytokines, transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β), Fas ligand, mitochondrial dysfunction, fatty acid oxidation by CYPs (CYP 2E1, 4A10, and 4A14), and peroxisomes, excess iron, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and the generation of gut-derived toxins such as lipopolysaccharide and ethanol [1,97,165].
Figure 3. Sources and fates of liver fat. The major sources of fat in the liver are delivery as NEFA from adipose tissue and de novo lipogenesis from carbohydrates and amino acids. Short chain NEFA from the gut are a small fraction of total circulating NEFA in the fed state. Uptake of triglyceride in the form of LDL and IDL constitutes a minor fraction. The intrahepatic NEFA pool has two major fates. Some undergoes mitochondrial β-oxidation while most is generally re-esterified to triglyceride, incorporated into VLDL and secreted into the circulation.

These Sprague-Dawley rats exhibited many of the features of human NASH that included obesity, insulin resistance, hyperinsulinemia, increased hepatic TNF-α mRNA expression, induced CYP2E1 and increased CYP2E1 mRNA expression, morphologically abnormal mitochondria, increased both oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation, fatty liver, patchy inflammation, and increased collagen in the liver.
