Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Bardoxolone inhibits the ubiquitinisation activity of KEAP1, a protein which interacts with and ubiquitinises the Nrf2 transcription factor (NFE2L2, Q16236) and sequesters Nrf2 to the cytoplasm. Bardoxolone-induced activation of Nrf2 leads to activation of Keap1-Nrf2 pathway which regulates genes (containing antioxidant response elements (AREs)) involved in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory responses [2-3,5].
