The main objective of this study was to define a gene network profile network in liver transplant recipients with alcoholic cirrhosis before and after liver transplantation. Genes were selected from data obtained in a previous study of liver transplant recipients with alcoholic cirrhosis. Selected up-regulated genes were further validated by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction in different groups of liver transplant recipients with alcoholic cirrhosis (n=5). Selected genes up-regulated before transplantation were: TNFRSF9 (tumor necrosis factor [TNF] receptor superfamily, member 9); IL2RB (interleukin-2 receptor beta); BCL2L2 (BCL2-like 2); NOX5 (NADPH) oxidase, EF-hand calcium binding domain 5); PEX5 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 5); PPARG (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma); NIBP (IKK2 binding protein); NKIRAS2 (NFKappaBeta inhibitor interacting Ras-like 2); IL4 (interleukin-4); IL-4R (interleukin 4 receptor); ADH1A (alcohol dehydrogenase 1A, class 1); ALDH1L1 (aldehyde dehydrogenase 1 family, member L1); MPO (myeloperoxidase); NPPA (natriuretic peptide precursor A); BCL2A1 (BCL2-related protein A1); GADD45A (growth arrest and DNA-damage-inducible alpha); TEGT (Bax inhibitor 1); PIK3CA (phosphoinositide-3-kinase, catalytic, alpha polypeptide); IFNGR2 (interferon gamma receptor 2); JAK2 (Janus Kinase 2); FAS (Fas, TNF receptor superfamily, member 6); TANK (TRAF family member-associated NFKB activator); TTRAP (TRAF and TNF receptor-associated protein); and ANXA5 (annexin A5).
