Abstract :

The antioxidant responsive element (ARE)-dependent transcriptional activation of the ferritin heavy chain (ferritin H) gene by resveratrol in human T cells was investigated. The AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) was found to play an important role in the activation of nuclear factor E2-related factor (Nrf2) and subsequent ARE-dependent ferritin H gene transcription by resveratrol.
