RESUMEN

Several in vitro DNA microarray studies have shown the importance of nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like 2 (Nrf2) in skin sensitization. Nevertheless, the exact in vivo role of the Nrf2-Keap1 pathway during the induction of skin sensitization remains unknown. To study the function of Nrf2, a local lymph node assay was performed in wild-type and Nrf2-deficient mice using 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene. The Nrf2-deficient mice show a more pronounced response, indicating that Nrf2 is involved in dampening the induction of skin sensitization.
