Variations in detoxifying genes linked to Lou Gehrig's disease
...d on chromosome 7q21.3, code for the production of detoxifying
enzymes involved in the metabolism of a variety of drugs, organophosphate insecticides, such as parathion, diazinon and chlorpyrifos, and nerve gas agents such as sarin. Previous research described a possible twofold increased risk for developing A...
Researches discover gene critical for protection against septic-shock-induced death
...r of most of the cellular antioxidant pathways and detoxifying
enzymes that protect the body from a wide variety of environmental toxicants. In subsequent studies, they discovered that Nrf2 is a pleiotropic protein thatregulates a broad spectrum of genes used by the host to defend against a variety of stresses, ...

...or a wealth of services to society. These include detoxifying
contaminated water, wastewater, sludge, sediment, or soil; capturing renewable energy from biomass; sensing contaminants or pathogens; and protecting the public from dangerous exposure to pathogens. Rittmann's center puts some of these technologies ...
Researchers Discover Gene That Determines Asthma Susceptibility By Regulating Inflammation
...ulator of the majority of antioxidant pathways and detoxifying
enzymes for environmental pollutants. This led researchers to consider the role of Nrf2 in lung inflammatory diseases caused by exposure to allergens. They found that the absence of the Nrf2 gene increased migration of inflammatory cells into the air...
