Potent inhibitor of MMP-3 expression (IC50 = 60 nM); down-regulates induction of MMP-3 in both stressed dopaminergic cells and activated microglia. Also suppresses proinflammatory responses and inhibits NO production in activated microglia. Attenuates motor deficits, prevents neurodegeneration and suppresses microglial activation in a Parkinson's disease mouse model. Brain penetrant.
