Scientist describe the role of lysosomes in paracetamol liver toxicity

IIBB-CSIC and IDIBAPS researchers have published an article in Scientific Reports describing the role of lysosomes in the damage caused by acetaminophen (paracetamol) in liver cells. Lysosomes are cell organelles involved in the degradation of cellular fragments. Dr. José C. Fernández-Checa head of the IDIBAPS team Mitochondrial regulation of cell death and steatohepatitis, and Dra. Carmen García-Ruiz, researcher at the same team, are the coordinators of the study. The first author is Dr. Anna Baulies, postdoctoral researcher at  Dr. Fernández-Checa’s team.
