The Keap1/Nrf2 pathway in health and disease: from the bench to the clinic.
Dundee, United Kingdom. In Biochem Soc Trans, Sep 2015
Regulation of Nrf2 is complex and although much attention has focussed on its repression by Kelch-like ECH-associated protein-1 (Keap1), recently it has become increasingly apparent that it is also controlled by cross-talk with other signalling pathways including the glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3)-β-transducin repeat-containing protein (β-TrCP) axis, ERAD (endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation)-associated E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase (Hrd1, also called synoviolin), nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB), Notch and AMP kinase.
Endoplasmic reticulum quality control in cancer: Friend or foe.
Ithaca, United States. In Semin Cancer Biol, Aug 2015
Here we review recent advances in our understanding of the complex relationship between ER proteostasis and cancer pathology, with a focus on the two most conserved ER quality-control mechanisms--the IRE1α-XBP1 pathway of the UPR and SEL1L-HRD1 complex of the ERAD.
