Abstract

With the realization that alcohol may exert its influence by acting as a direct hepatotoxin, interest has shifted to other areas, especially those concerned with macromolecular metabolism within the hepatocyte. Ethanol and the consequences of its metabolism have a pervasive effect on drug, protein and glycoprotein metabolism. It is these latter actions of ethanol which we particularly hope to emphasize in this review.
