(5Z,9Z,13Z)-Geranylgeranylacetone is the structural analogue of Teprenone (T103500), an anti-ulcerative. Geranylgeranylacetone can induce expression of HSP70, HSPB8, and HSPB1. Induction of HSP70 expression is protective against the development of various diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, hypoxic/ischemic brain injury and spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy (cytoprotective and anti-inflammatory effects). Reports indicate that GGA protects against NSAID-induced gastric and intestinal lesions by induction of HSP70 expression. Other studies have shown that GGA induces expression of HSPB8 and HSPB1 and reduces the formation of amyloid oligomers as well as insoluble aggregates in HSPB5 R120G TG mice.
