Mechanistic insights into how Ginger-derived compounds function as antiviral agents: Ginger-based antiviral therapy for chikungunya (CHIKV) and Zika (ZIKV) viruses: Zingerone, isolated from Ginger, 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, 4/June/2019, 11.01 am

Zingerone as a broad-spectrum anti-infective agent:   Zingerone, one of the components of Ginger,  inhibits Hepatitis-B/C, Dengue, Zika, Ebola, HIV-1, Mtb, Malaria, CMV, Influenza H1NI1,  respiratory syncytial,  Sindbis, and SFV viruses by increasing the Levels of the Antiviral Proteins IFITM3, & Interferon-stimulated gene 15, 1/June/2019,  6.04 pm

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
