Description: TH-237A is a novel neuroprotective agent, which possess protective properties against β-amyloid (Aβ)-induced neurodegeneration associated with Alzheimer's disease. Exposure of neuronal cultures to Aβ peptide in the presence of 5 nM TH-237A resulted in a 50% increase in survival. Neuronal cultures treated with other toxic stimuli such as staurosporine, thapsigargin, paraquat and H2O2 showed significantly enhanced survival in the presence of TH-237A . Microtubule binding and tubulin assembly studies revealed differences compared to paclitaxel, but confirmed the interaction of TH-237A with microtubules.
