To verify the mechanism, the experts performed the same experiments on mice that lacked the SIRT3 gene. In those studies, honokiol had no impact. They determined that honokiol binds right to SIRT3 also. The combination appears to increase SIRT3's activity. The results, the authors wrote, suggest pharmacological activation of SIRT3 by honokiol could possibly be ‘a potential therapeutic technique to prevent adverse cardiac redesigning and other diseases connected with abnormal cellular development and organ fibrosis.’ ‘Although we feel that is extremely promising,’ Gupta stated, ‘there continues to be much function to be done.’ Honokiol is obtainable as an herbal treatment but the purity of such preparations is undetermined.
