We investigated the neuroprotective properties of the GLP-1 analogue liraglutide in SH-SY5Y cells during methyl glyoxal stress. Cell survival was enhanced, while cytotoxicity and apoptosis was reduced. Expression of the pro-survival Mcl1 signaling protein, activation of Akt, MEK1/2 and the transcription factor p90RSK was increased. Pro-apoptotic Bax and Bik expression was reduced, and the influx of calcium into the cell was normalised. The results demonstrate a range of growth factor related cytoprotective processes induced by the drug liraglutide.
