Life Stage Applicability
Key Event Relationship Description
The accumulation of unfolded proteins in the ER triggers the activation of sensors involved in the unfolded protein response.
Evidence Supporting this KER
The activation of the UPR is well documented and known to be related to liver injury.
Uncertainties and Inconsistencies
Is there a threshold when the amount of misfolded proteins so great that the adverse outcome is triggered from the UPR?
Are all 3 branches involved in the adverse outcome? Do they need to be individually described? All the complex feedback loops make for many KERs
