Description

General description

A highly unsaturared diterpene dicarboxylic acid ester found in saffron.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Crocin alleviates some ethanol-induced impairments of learning and prevents ethanol-induced inhibition of hippocampal long-term potentiation (LTP), a form of activity-dependent synaptic plasticity that may underly learning and memory. Related CNS effects are specific to the digentiobiose ester; crocetin glucose gentiobiose ester is half as potent, and the diglucose ester has no effect at all.
