Drinking ginger tea will make you to shed off weight and and lower lipid levels: Zingerone, a natural compound found in cooked ginger, decreases the levels of HMGCR,  triglycerides, free cholesterol, and total cholesterol and prevents the progression of Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), via up-regulation of its target gene, 31/May/2019, 3.12 pm

The significance of the study: Given that: (1)  15-30% of Western populations suffer from Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), while 6-25% of Asian populations suffer from it; (2) 75 […]

Amino acid-based therapy for Myocardial Infarction:  L-Histidine, an essential amino acid and  precursor for Histamine, inhibits DNA damage responses, induces telomerase expression, inhibits telomere shortening, and promotes cardiomyocyte survival after myocardial infarction, via up regulation of PNUTS, 31/May/2019, 2.49 pm

What they say:  A recent study from the Institute for Cardiovascular Regeneration, Centre of Molecular Medicine, Frankfurt, Germany shows that “MicroRNA-34a regulates cardiac ageing and function.” This study was published, in the 7 March  2013 issue of of […]

Natural product-based antiviral therapy for chikungunya (CHIKV) and Zika (ZIKV) viruses: L-Canavanine, isolated from Dioclea Megacarpa and legumes, increases spermidine/spermine N1-acetyltransferase (SAT) expression, depletes spermidine and Spermine levels, and restricts Chikungunya and Zika viruses replication via upregulation of its target gene, 31/May/2019, 2.04 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the Viral Populations and Pathogenesis Unit, Institut Pasteur, CNRS UMR 3569, 25–28 rue du Dr. Roux, 75724 Paris Cedex […]

Mechanistic insights into how social isolation stress promotes weight gain and Diabetes: Social isolation stress increases CADM1 and its downstream target genes that inhibit glucose-induced insulin secretion, aggravates insulin resistance, decreases energy utilization, promotes weight gain and diet-induced obesity and TIIDM, via up regulation of its target gene, 30/May/2019, 6.58 am

Introduction: What they say A study from the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, Berlin, Germany shows that “Regulation of body weight and energy homeostasis by […]
