AM 580 is a selective retinoic acid analog, which is useful in vitro as a RARα agonist. Studies indicate that RARα increases the signaling of the RARα receptor to prevent intracellular and extracellular Amyloid β accumulation. In addition, this receptor increases the expression of disintegrin and metalloprotease. Since Amyloid β accumulation is a major finding in Alzheimer's disease (AD), AM 580 can be used to study this disease in vitro. AM 580 also induces the functions of IL-4, IL-5 and IL-13 and suppresses the production of IL-12 and IFNγ. Alternate studies suggest that AM 580 inhibits tumor proliferation, via reducing the level of RARγ. AM 580 is an activator of RAR β and RAR γ.
