Biochem/physiol Actions

FTY720 is an immunomodulating drug and sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) receptor modulator. Phosphorylation of FTY270 by sphingosine kinase causes S1P1R internalization, which sequesters lymphocytes in lymph nodes, preventing them from taking part in an autoimmune response. Clinically, it has been approved for the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). It has also been shown to block and reverse paclitaxel-induced chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) through S1PR inhibition as well as inhibit the activity of histone deacetylases in the hippocampus of mouse brains, thereby modulating memory.
