Causal Biological Networks Database
The Oxidative Stress network depicts pathways regulating cellular responses to oxidative stress, which includes intracellular free radical management, cellular responses to endogenous/exogenous oxidants and anti-oxidants and the glutathione metabolism. The network details transcriptional regulation of AP-1, NF-kB, and Nrf2 complexes as they relate to management of oxidative stress. Reviewed during Jamboree2014. Reviewed during Jamboree2015
