Arrows indicate difference in the long-lived model compared to corresponding control, with ↑ indicating “greater in the long-lived model compared to control,” indicating “no difference between long-lived model and control,” and N.R. indicating “data were not reported in the investigation.” To date, no experimental data for Nrf2 expression or activity have been reported in aged humans. CMVEC: cerebromicrovascular endothelial cells; SkM: skeletal muscle (mixed skeletal muscle: gastrocnemius, soleus, and plantaris).
