4-Phenylbutyrate Mitigates the Motor Impairment and Dopaminergic Neuronal Death During Parkinson’s Disease Pathology via Targeting VDAC1 Mediated Mitochondrial Function and Astrocytes Activation
Neurochem Res. 2022 Aug 3. doi: 10.1007/s11064-022-03691-0. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTParkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive motor neurodegenerative disorder significantly associated with protein aggregation related neurodegenerative mechanisms. In view of no disease modifying drugs, the present study was targeted to investigate the therapeutic effects of pharmacological agent 4-phenylbutyric acid (4PBA) in PD pathology. 4PBA is an FDA approved monocarboxylic acid ... read more
