|Product Specification Sheet|
- Brain glycogen phosphorylase (bGP) agonist. Arzanol directly interacts with bGP, competing for the same allosteric binding site on bGP like AMP (but with higher affinity), inducing similar conformational changes and promoting the transition to the active form, consequently leading to increased bGP enzyme activity.
GPs are key enzymes in glycogen metabolism, promoting the rate-limiting step of its mobilization. In brain, glycogen acts as an emergency glucose storage to protect neurons against hypoglycemia and hypoxic stress, being critical for high cognitive processes such as learning and memory consolidation. Reduced glycogen breakdown is associated with impaired cognitive functions and neuro-degeneration. Activation of glycogen breakdown might be a new therapeutic strategy.
