Old livers--C/EBPalpha meets new partners.

The aging liver loses the ability to proliferate after partial hepatic resections. We have recently found that, in liver, aging switches C/EBPalpha from inhibition of Cdks to repression of E2F, the pathway that normally operates in adipose tissues. This switch causes a loss of proliferative response in old livers because of an inability to induce E2F target genes after partial hepatectomy.[1]
