Adaptaquin Case Reaction

Satisfactory Essays
Adaptaquin is a selective hydroxyquinoline HIF prolyl hydroxylase (HIF-PHD) inhibitor [1][2]. The hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase domain enzymes (HIF-PHDs) are a family of oxygen sensors that has been implicated in neuronal survival. Catalysis by the HIF-PHDs destabilizes the transcriptional activator HIF-1a under normoxia. HIF-PHDs are promising target candidates for mitochondrial protection in paradigms of oxidative stress. The inhibition of HIF-PHDs prevented neuronal cell death induced by mitochondrial toxins [1][2]. Adaptaquin is a hydroxyquinoline HIF-PHD inhibitor. Adaptaquin inhibited purified and recombinant PHD2. Adaptaquin (30 mg/kg) penetrated the blood-brain barrier, resulting in inhibition of the oxygen-sensing HIF-PHDs
