T-Type Ca2+ Enhancer SAK3 Activates CaMKII and Proteasome Activities in #Lewy Body Dementia Mice Model

Lewy bodies are pathological characteristics of Lewy body dementia (LBD) and are composed of α-synuclein (α-Syn), which is mostly degraded via the ubiquitin–proteasome system. More importantly, 26S proteasomal activity decreases in the brain of LBD patients. We recently introduced a T-type calcium channel enhancer SAK3 (ethyl-8-methyl-2,4-dioxo-2-(piperidin-1-yl)- 2H-spiro[cyclopentane-1,3-imidazo [1,2-a]pyridin]-2-ene-3-carboxylate) for Alzheimer’s disease therapeutics. SAK3 enhanced the … Continue reading T-Type Ca2+ Enhancer SAK3 Activates CaMKII and Proteasome Activities in #Lewy Body Dementia Mice Model
