- Hepatic steatosis is considered to have an important impact on liver tumorigenesis, despite a lack of clear experimental evidence. Histopathological analysis of H-ras12V transgenic mice showed liver lesions on a steatosis background had significantly higher incidence than on a non-steatosis background. Further investigation showed that apolipoprotein A-I was elevated and accumulated around fatty vacuoles. This elevated level of apolipoprotein A-I was coupled with an elevated level of H-ras12V protein and ROS. In conclusion, our results suggest that the expression of H-ras12V oncogene leads to elevated levels of ROS and apolipoprotein A-I that contribute to steatosis. The steatosis, in turn, promotes the development of hepatic lesions induced by H-ras12V oncogene.
