Redox signaling (Anna-Liisa Levonen group)

Nrf2 is a transcription factor mainly involved in combating cellular stress caused by reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. However, Nrf2 is also involved in cancer and cardiometabolic diseases, making it an essential drug target.

Latonen Lab - Cancer stress biology

We study the molecular, cellular and tissue mechanisms that contribute to the increased ability of cancer cells to tolerate stress. We focus on the molecular mechanisms behind the different capacities of cancer and neuronal cells to deal with protein and RNA aggregates, and the ability of cancer ...
