Exposure of mitochondria to oxidative stress and elevated Ca(2+) promotes opening of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (PTP), resulting in membrane depolarization, uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation, and potentially cell death. This study tested the hypothesis that treatment of rats with sulforaphane (SFP), an activator of the Nrf2 pathway(More)
Retinoids down-regulate the expression of metalloproteinases, cytokines, and other genes involved in cell proliferation and inflammation. Tazarotene (AGN 190168), a retinoic acid receptor (RAR)-specific retinoid, is effective in the treatment of psoriasis, a hyperproliferative and inflammatory skin disease.
