Thus, it has been suggested that Nurr1 contributes to the pathology of PD not only by controlling the generation and maintenance of dopaminergic neurons but also by limiting the inflammatory responses of microglia and astrocytes that result in the production of neurotoxic factors. , 2006). A recent report suggests that mice deficient for Nur77 exhibit significantly increased susceptibility to diet-induced obesity and insulin resistance.
