An innovative small molecule for promoting neuroreparative strategies
In this study, a new regenerative strategy to treat several neurodegenerative diseases is suggested by the use of a multitarget approach induced by our small molecule, MC111. Considering the importance of P-gp and BCRP expression on stem cell differentiation and the involvement of TLR4 on neurodegeneration processes, we investigated the effect of MC111, belonging to our library of P-gp active compounds on: (i) TLR4 signaling; (ii) P-gp and BCRP activity and expression; (iii) neurite sprouting. The observed findings exerted by MC111, open a new scenario for a multitarget and regenerative approach in neurodegenerative diseases encouraging the in vivo evaluation of MC111 as new tool in neuroreparative medicine.
