Smer-28 leads to autophagy by virtue of the mTOR-independent pathway. It also enhances clearance of β-amyloid protein in cell lines and primary neuronal culture models (1-3). It has been hypothesized as a potential therapeutic for neurodegenerative diseases (4). Smer-28 induces the release of articular cartilage vesicles from healthy articular chondrocytes in a dose- and time-dependent manner (5). It also encourages reprogramming of fibroblasts to neural stem-like cells (6).
