Interaction Information:

Comment In addition to the reduced expression of inflammatory cytokines, the expression of the antioxidant proteins manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) and the nuclear respiratory factor 1 (Nrf1), a master regulator in the protection from reactive oxygen species, were both increased in transgenic mice on both standard diet and high-fat diet, compared with wild-type mice. Both genes, MnSOD and Nrf1, have been demonstrated to be induced by PGC1alpha, which in turn is positively regulated by Sirt1.
