Chemical Name: 2(E)-Butenedioic acid 1,4-dimethyl ester
Biological ActivityDMF is a nuclear factor (erythroid-derived)-like 2 (Nrf2) pathway activator; induces upregulation of antioxidant gene expression. Displays cytoprotective effects in human spinal cord astrocytes, oligodendrocyte precursor cells and hippocampal neurons following hydrogen peroxide challenge. Exerts neuroprotective effects in vivo in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. Primary metabolite (MMF, Cat. No. 4511) available.
