Life Stage Applicability
Key Event Relationship Description
After UPR activation the downstream target of this pathway, CHOP, triggers apoptosis.
Evidence Collection Strategy
Evidence Supporting this KER
Hepatocyte apoptosis in response to UPR activation is well documented.Chop is the downstream target that gets activated by the UPR.(Puthalakath et al., 2007) It plays a major role in the induction of cell death (Marciniak et al., 2004)(Liu et al., 2014)
Uncertainties and Inconsistencies
Due to the complex feedback loops within the UPR it is difficult to make this KER linear. CHOP is also involved in autophagy.
