Excessive alcohol consumption leads to damage to the organs of the body. More importantly, the liver is majorly affected organ upon alcohol consumption for most of the people; it causes inflammation and affects various pathways involved in metabolism. If the person is with high response of inflammatory in conduct with alcohol leads to the liver damage, which involves the creating effects with major cycle leads to homeostasis. In this review, we summarize the molecular mechanisms of alcoholic liver disease, such as the important role of genes, risk factors, pathogenicity and role of micro RNA, the role of inflammation in the liver and alcoholic fibrosis in the liver. There is increased oxidative stress, change in the biochemical alterations and reduction in the antioxidant enzymes. These changes in the mechanism lead to liver injury. Hepatocyte nuclear factor-4 is the major transcriptional factor for the regulation of some genes involved in the lipid metabolism and oxidation process; with the help of the agonist, we can attenuate the level of the gene in the site of hepatic tissues, which will prevent the homeostatic condition. This review shows a clear view of the various pathways involved in alcohol consumption, which helps in the prevention of ALD using an agonist.
