The mechanisms of collagen degradation in the liver are complex. Preliminary results suggest a paradoxical increase in the activity of neutral collagenase in animals fed ethanol, at least during the early stage of alcoholic liver injury (Okazaki et al. 1977). Subsequently, collagenase activity may decrease and contribute to the collagen accumulation (Maruyama et al. 1982). On the other hand, the role of increased collagen synthesis is suggested by increased activity of hepatic peptidylproline hydroxylase in rats and primates and increased incorporation of proline C14 into hepatic collagen in rat liver slices (Feinman and Lieber 1972).

Normally, fatty acids are oxidized via tJ-oxidation and the citric acid cycle of the mitochondria, which serves as "hydrogen donor" for the mitochondrial electron transport chain. When ethanol is oxidized, however, the generated hydrogen equivalents, which are shuttled into the mitochondria, supplant the citric acid cycle as a source of hydrogen. Depressed fatty acid oxidation by ethanol has been demonstrated in liver slices (Lieber and Schmid 1961), perfused livers (Lieber et al. 1967), isolated hepatocytes (Ontko 1973), and human liver biopsy tissue (Fischel and Oette 1974) and in vivo (Blomstrand et al.
