InnateDB Annotation
Summary
NFE2L2 plays an important role in TLR4-mediated autophagy. NFE2L2 is activated by reactive oxygen species-MAPK14 axis-dependent TLR4 signalling, and induces the accumulation of SQSTM1 and aggresome-like induced structures.
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
Summary
[Mus musculus] Nfe2l2 plays an important role in Tlr4-mediated autophagy. Nfe2l2 is activated by reactive oxygen species-Mapk14 axis-dependent Tlr4 signaling, and induces the accumulation of Sqstm1 and aggresome-like induced structures.
[Mus musculus] Phosphorylation of Sqstm1 (p62) activates the Keap1-Nrf2 pathway during selective autophagy
Entrez Gene
Summary This gene encodes a transcription factor which is a member of a small family of basic leucine zipper (bZIP) proteins. The encoded transcription factor regulates genes which contain antioxidant response elements (ARE) in their promoters; many of these genes encode proteins involved in response to injury and inflammation which includes the production of free radicals. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]
