  • Caloric restriction mimetic (CRM). Caloric restriction mimetics (CRMs) are natural or synthetic compounds that mimic the health-promoting and longevity-extending effects of caloric restriction. CRMs provoke the deacetylation of cellular proteins coupled to an increase in autophagic flux in the absence of toxicity.
  • Induces the deacetylation of cytoplasmic proteins and stimulates autophagic flux, requiring transcription factor EB (TFEB)- and E3 (TFE3)-dependent gene transcription and mRNA translation to trigger autophagy.
  • Stimulates the translocation of TFEB and TFE3 into nuclei both in vitro and in vivo, in hepatocytes and cardiomyocytes. Consequently induces autophagy in vitro and in vivo, mediates autophagy-dependent cardioprotective effects and improves the efficacy of anticancer chemotherapy in vivo.
  • So far this chalcone polyphenol has been used as an intermediate for synthesis of biochemical substances and was described to have weak antioxidant and antimicrobial activity.
