DOR agonist (SNC-80) exhibits anti-parkinsonian effect via downregulating UPR/oxidative stress signals and inflammatory response in vivo.


:The pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease exhibit imperative roles in unfolded protein response stress-induced oxidative stress and inflammation in general. Although, delta opioid receptor (DOR), has been found to represent anti-parkinsonian effect at behavioral level, its underlying mechanism remains elusive till date. In the present study the role of DOR agonist, SNC-80 and the consorted molecular mechanisms, which translates to behavioral recuperation, has been delineated. In order to mimic PD, mice were intra-peritoneally injected with MPTP, following exposure to SNC-80 and L-DOPA to elucidate amelioration of the MPTP-induced behavioral impairments. The results obtained suggest that the severity of the compromised motor functions up-regulated the UPR stress sensors: IRE-1α/Bip/CHOP, oxidative stress along with the pro-inflammatory cytokines: IL1β/IFNγ/TNFα and IL-6. These inimical factors combined, aids the persistence of the disease in MPTP intoxicated mice. Supplementation with SNC-80 significantly improved motor functions via down-regulation of the UPR stress sensors and inflammatory cytokines. Additionally, SNC-80 could upregulate Nrf-2 and Heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) protein expression indicating their involvement in SNC-80's potential anti-oxidant function. There was also a significant reduction in protein carbonyl content indicating the positive role of SNC-80 in dampening MPTP induced oxidative stress. Concomitantly, L-DOPA also demonstrated an enhanced effect towards improvement of motor functions but did not suppress the UPR and inflammatory responses caused due to MPTP intoxication. Hence, these results suggest that SNC-80 could hold a pivotal role in replenishing motor functions essentially via regulating UPR and inflammation.
