The selective autophagy substrate p62 activates the stress responsive transcription factor Nrf2 through inactivation of Keap1
Impaired selective turnover of p62 by autophagy causes severe liver injury accompanied by the formation of p62-positive inclusions and upregulation of detoxifying enzymes. These phenotypes correspondExpand

Nrf2-Keap1 defines a physiologically important stress response mechanism.
The transcription factor Nrf2 regulates the basal and inducible expression of numerous detoxifying and antioxidant genes. The cytoplasmic protein Keap1 interacts with Nrf2 and represses its function.Expand

Nrf2 redirects glucose and glutamine into anabolic pathways in metabolic reprogramming.
Cancer cells consume large quantities of nutrients and maintain high levels of anabolism. Recent studies revealed that various oncogenic pathways are involved in modulation of metabolism. Nrf2, a keyExpand

Molecular mechanisms of the Keap1–Nrf2 pathway in stress response and cancer evolution
The Keap1–Nrf2 regulatory pathway plays a central role in the protection of cells against oxidative and xenobiotic damage. Under unstressed conditions, Nrf2 is constantly ubiquitinated by theExpand

Phosphorylation of p62 activates the Keap1-Nrf2 pathway during selective autophagy.
The Keap1-Nrf2 system and autophagy are both involved in the oxidative-stress response, metabolic pathways, and innate immunity, and dysregulation of these processes is associated with pathogenicExpand

Nrf2 suppresses macrophage inflammatory response by blocking proinflammatory cytokine transcription
Nrf2 (NF-E2-related factor-2) transcription factor regulates oxidative/xenobiotic stress response and also represses inflammation. However, the mechanisms how Nrf2 alleviates inflammation are stillExpand

Bach proteins belong to a novel family of BTB-basic leucine zipper transcription factors that interact with MafK and regulate transcription through the NF-E2 site.
Members of the small Maf family (MafK, MafF, and MafG) are basic region leucine zipper (bZip) proteins that can function as transcriptional activators or repressors. The dimer compositions of theirExpand
