1. NF-κB
  2. Keap1-Nrf2


Keap1-Nrf2 is the major regulator of cytoprotective responses to oxidative and electrophilic stress. Kelch-like ECH-associated protein 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the Keap1 gene. Keap1 has been shown to interact with Nrf2, a master regulator of the antioxidant response, which is important for the amelioration of oxidative stress. Under quiescent conditions, Nrf2 is anchored in the cytoplasm through binding to Keap1, which, in turn, facilitates the ubiquitination and subsequent proteolysis of Nrf2. Such sequestration and further degradation of Nrf2 in the cytoplasm are mechanisms for the repressive effects of Keap1 on Nrf2. because Nrf2 activation leads to a coordinated antioxidant and anti-inflammatory response, and Keap1 represses Nrf2 activation, Keap1 has become a very attractive drug target.
