A Biochemical Society Focused Meeting
The transcription factor Nrf2 is a key mediator of the antioxidant response and is important in inflammation, cancer, multi-drug resistance, autophagy, aging, neurodegeneration, lipogenesis and many other physiological and pathological processes. This meeting will provide an opportunity for researchers interested in Nrf2 to discuss recent developments in this area.
- Structure, function and regulation of Nrf2
- Repression of Nrf2 by Keap1
- Role of Nrf2 target genes
- Importance of Nrf2 in homeostasis and tissue repair
- Role in chronic diseases, including cancer and cardiovascular disease
- Keap1-independent mechanisms of Nrf2 repression
- Nrf2 as a therapeutic target
Proceedings (invited speakers) will be published in Biochemical Society Transactions.
