TBHQ is a phenolic antioxidant, a selective inducer of Nrf2 in a preclinical model of ICH.( Intracerebral hemorrhage ). In vivo :The administration of TBHQ enhanced the DNA-binding activity of Nrf2 in the brain and reduced oxidative brain damage in comparison to vehicle-treated ICH. TBHQ treatment reduced microglial activation with concomitant reduction in the release of proinflammatory cytokine interleukin-1β (IL-1 β). TBHQ treatment attenuated neurodegeneration and improved neurological outcomes after ICH.[1] TBHQ increase the nuclear accumulation of Nrf2 and the Nrf2-regulated gene expression, including heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) and NAD(P)H. Knocking out Nrf2 in mice abolish the protective effect of TBHQ on the DOX-induced cardiotoxicity. [2]
