Figure 5: Schematic representation of AST mechanism in reducing stress oxidative in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients. AST induces the expression of transcription factor Nrf2. Nrf2 translocates into the nucleus and binds to ARE on the gene and increases antioxidant enzymes SOD and catalase. AST, Astaxanthin; Nrf2, nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2; SOD, superoxide dismutase; ARE, antioxidant response element.
