Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Although the trigger of the neurodegenerative disease process is unknown, the relevance of aging stands out as a major risk for the development of neurodegeneration. With age, a multitude of changes occur at the molecular level, such as an increase in oxidative stress and a decrease in the antioxidant capacity of an organism, with the decrease in the levels of the transcription factor NRF2 being one of the main causes of this imbalance. This creates a favorable environment for the development of neurodegenerative diseases. Although each of these diseases has its own characteristics, they all share altered proteostasis, oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. In recent years, it has been described that the transcription factor NRF2 is involved in the modulation of all these processes, becoming a pleiotropic factor. Therefore, understanding the involvement of NRF2 in the different mechanisms associated with neurodegeneration may be of vital importance in establishing new therapeutic targets.

As Guest Editor, I invite you to contribute to this Special Issue, whose focus will be the role of NRF2 in neurodegenerative disorders.

We also invite researchers in the field and the participants of the COST Action CA20121, Bench to Bedside Transition for Pharmacological regulation of NRF2 in non-communicable diseases (BenBedPhar), to submit their latest research findings to this Special Issue. We look forward to reading your contributions.
