Ribavirin suppresses hepatic lipogenesis through inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase inhibition: Involvement of adenosine monophosphate‐activated protein kinase‐related kinases and retinoid X receptor α

Ribavirin (RBV) has been widely used as an antiviral reagent, specifically for patients with chronic hepatitis C. We previously demonstrated that adenosine kinase, which monophosphorylates RBV into the...
