Summary of "Increased placental expressions of nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 and antioxidant enzymes in gestational diabetes: Protective mechanisms against the placental oxidative stress?"

Gestational diabetes mellitus is associated with increased oxidative stress. Oxidative stress may contribute to the risk for pregnancy pathologies associated with gestational diabetes mellitus. In this study we investigated the expression of placental nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) and antioxidant enzymes of gestational diabetes mellitus and healthy pregnant women and correlated them with the maternal and cord plasma as well as placental tissue oxidative stress parameters.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A hepatocyte nuclear factor that is closely related to HEPATOCYTE NUCLEAR FACTOR 1-ALPHA but is only weakly expressed in the LIVER. Mutations in hepatocyte nuclear factor 1-beta are associated with renal CYSTS and MATURITY-ONSET DIABETES MELLITUS type 5.

A transcription factor that regulates the expression of a large set of hepatic proteins including SERUM ALBUMIN; beta-fibrinogen; and ALPHA 1-ANTITRYPSIN. It is composed of hetero- or homo-dimers of HEPATOCYTE NUCLEAR FACTOR 1-ALPHA and HEPATOCYTE NUCLEAR FACTOR 1-BETA.

Hepatocyte nuclear factor 1-alpha is a transcription factor found in the LIVER; PANCREAS; and KIDNEY that regulates HOMEOSTASIS of GLUCOSE.

A family of double-stranded RNA-binding proteins that are related to NFATC TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS. In addition to binding to RNA, nuclear factor 90 proteins form heterodimeric complexes that regulate GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION and may play a role in T-CELL activation.

Activated form of factor VIII. The B-domain of factor VIII is proteolytically cleaved by thrombin to form factor VIIIa. Factor VIIIa exists as a non-covalent dimer in a metal-linked (probably calcium) complex and functions as a cofactor in the enzymatic activation of factor X by factor IXa. Factor VIIIa is similar in structure and generation to factor Va.
