Network Overlap

The node-based overlap between this network and other networks is calculated as the Szymkiewicz-Simpson coefficient of their respective nodes. Up to the top 10 are shown below.

Network Overlap
Identification of a novel aspartic protease (Asp 2) as beta-secretase v1.0.0 20%
Estrogen receptor-α is localized to neurofibrillary tangles in Alzheimer's disease v1.0.0 17%
Protein aggregation can inhibit clathrin-mediated endocytosis by chaperone competition v1.0.0 15%
Inert and seed-competent tau monomers suggest structural origins of aggregation v1.0.0 12%
Pathological missorting of endogenous MAPT/Tau in neurons caused by failure of protein degradation systems v1.0.1 11%

a(CHEBI:"dimethyl fumarate") increases act(p(HGNC:NFE2L2)) View Subject | View Object

The greatest FImax was observed with Protandim at 135-fold, followed by bardoxolone methyl at 67-fold, dimethyl fumarate at 55-fold, and sulforaphane at 21-fold PubMed:22020111

a(CHEBI:"dimethyl fumarate") increases act(p(HGNC:NFE2L2)) View Subject | View Object

When compared contemporaneously in the AREc32-based assay, FImax observed was in the order Protandim > bardoxolone methyl > dimethyl fumarate > sulforaphane. PubMed:22020111

a(CHEBI:"dimethyl fumarate") increases act(p(HGNC:NFE2L2)) View Subject | View Object

A recent laboratory study of dimethyl fumarate found that the compound activates Nrf2 in primary astrocytes, but not in the C6 glioma-derived cell line (Wilms et al., 2010), demonstrating that different cells may respond quite differently to Nrf2 activators PubMed:22020111
