Abstract

Augmenter of liver regeneration (ALR), also described as hepatopoietin (HPO) and hepatic stimulator substance or hepatic regenerative stimulation substance (HSS), is representative member of ERV protein family with flavin-linked sulfhydryl oxidase activity, that facilitate the formation of disulfide bonds in reduced protein substrates [1]. Growing numbers of evidence demonstrate the involvement of ALR in maintaining cellular redox communication under various pathophysiological conditions [2-7].
