Mutations in familial Parkinson's disease (PD) have been associated with the failure of protein degradation through the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS). Impairment of proteasome function has also been suggested to play a role in the pathogenesis of sporadic PD. We examined the proteasome activity in PC12 cells treated with 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA), the(More)
We previously developed orthosteric M1 muscarinic agonists (e.g. AF102B, AF267B and AF292), which act as cognitive enhancers and potential disease modifiers. We now report on a novel compound, AF710B, a highly potent and selective allosteric M1 muscarinic and σ1 receptor agonist. AF710B exhibits an allosteric agonistic profile on the M1 muscarinic receptor;(More)
