Abstract : The combination of the scaffolds of the cholinesterase inhibitor huprine Y and the antioxidant capsaicin results in compounds with nanomolar potencies toward human acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) that retain or improve the antioxidant properties of capsaicin. Crystal structures of their complexes with AChE and BChE revealed the molecular basis for their high potency. Brain penetration was confirmed by biodistribution studies in C57BL6 mice, with one compound (5i) displaying better brain/plasma ratio than donepezil. Chronic treatment of 10 month-old APP/PS1 mice with 5i (2 mg/kg, i.p., 3 times per week, 4 weeks) rescued learning and memory impairments, as measured by three different behavioral tests, delayed the Alzheimer-like pathology progression, as suggested by a significantly reduced Abeta42/Abeta40 ratio in the hippocampus, improved basal synaptic efficacy, and significantly reduced hippocampal oxidative stress and neuroinflammation. Compound 5i emerges as an interesting anti-Alzheimer lead with beneficial effects on cognitive symptoms and on some underlying disease mechanisms.

Abstract : Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder in which the amyloid-beta (Abeta) peptide plays a key role in synaptic impairment and memory decline associated with neuronal dysfunction and intra-neuronal accumulation of hyperphosphorylated tau protein. Two novel enantiopure rhein-huprine hybrids ((+)-1 and (-)-1) exhibit potent inhibitory effects against human acetylcholinesterase (AChE), butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE), BACE-1 and both Abeta and tau antiaggregation activity in vitro and reduction on the amyloid precursor protein (APP) processing in vivo. Interestingly, in this work, we observed beneficial effects with both (+)- and (-)-1 in the reversion of the neuropathology presented in the AbetaPPswe/PS-1 Alzheimer s model, including a reduction in the Abeta levels, tau phosphorylation and memory impairment with both treatments. Also, in young transgenic mice that present early symptoms of synaptic failure and memory loss, we found a protection of cognitive functions, including long-term potentiation (LTP) and a reduction of the neuro-inflammation by both (+)- and (-)-1. Furthermore, animals with an advanced disease (11month-old) present an exacerbate neurodegeneration that is reversed only with the dextrorotatory enantiomer. These studies indicated that rhein-huprine derivatives with multiple properties might have interesting therapeutic potential for AD.
