3-(2,4-Dimethoxybenzylidene)-anabaseine: A promising candidate drug for Alzheimer's disease?

Abstract : 3-(2,4-Dimethoxybenzylidene)-anabaseine is an analog of the paralytic alkaloid, anabaseine, from the ribbon worms Amphiporus sp., that shows numerous properties, in particular an agonist activity on alpha7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. This article reviews these properties and explains to what extent they could be valuable to control symptomatology and/or neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease.
