"The scientists discovered that Nrf2 worked in different ways to help remove either mutant LRRK2 or alpha-synuclein from the cells. For mutant LRRK2, Nrf2 drove the protein to gather into incidental clumps that can remain in the cell without damaging it. For alpha-synuclein, Nrf2 accelerated the breakdown and clearance of the protein, reducing its levels in the cell."
nrf2 probably plays a fundamental role is protecting neuronal cells from ROS and Ca disregulation.
Its an emerging field:
