Application

AGK2 is a SIRT2 inhibitor. AGK2 has been used in a study to determine that SIRT2 inhibition induces cell death and decreases the intracellular ATP level. AGK2 also rescues dopamine neurons from α-synuclein toxicity in Parkinson′s disease models.

Biochem/physiol Actions

AGK2 is a SIRT2 inhibitor. AGK2 rescues dopamine neurons from α-synuclein toxicity in Parkinson′s disease models. IC50 for SIRT2 = 3.5 uM. AGK2 is >15-fold more selective for SIRT2 than SIRT1 and SIRT3. AGK2 may be the most selective SIRT2 inhibitor available.
