Assistant Professor of Molecular and Integrative Physiology Sayeepriyadarshini Anakk published an article in the November 21, 2013, edition of Cell Reports entitled "Bile Acids Activate YAP to Promote Liver Carcinogenesis."

The article elucidates some of the ways elevated levels of bile acids cause liver cell carcinomas, including through the loss of the nuclear receptors FXR and SHP, as well as the activation of the Yes-associated Protein (YAP) of the Hippo pathway.

The MCB Communications Office also produced its first video abstract for the article.
