Unearthing an unknown function of a  known drug in regenerative muscle atrophy: Simvastatin(brand name: zocor), a lipid-lowering medication, increases the expression of IGF-1, PI3K(p85a) and B-Myb, decreases the expression of tumor suppressors, promotes regeneration of muscle cells, and reverses muscle atrophy via up regulation of its target gene, 22/February/2018, 3.04 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from the Cardiac Regeneration and Ageing Lab, School of Life Science, Shanghai University, Shanghai 200444, China shows that “miR-29b contributes […]

Awakening the sleeping/cancer-protecting angels in mutant p53-expressing human tumors: Sitagliptin (trade name: Januvia), a DPP4 inhibitor, increases the expression of tumor suppressors genes, such as  BTG2, INK4a, TA-p73, TAp63, p53, and others, induces regression of p53-mutated human tumors, via down regulation of its target gene, 22/June/2018, 2.54 pm

From Significance of the study to Public health relevance:  Given that: (1) cancer suppressor p53 is mutated in more than 50% of human cancers of different […]

Unknown function of a known drug in the treatment of muscle atrophy and wasting: Simvastatin(brand name: Zocor),  a lipid-lowering agent,  increases the expression of FGF19 and its receptor ß-Klotho, phosphorylates ERK1/2 and S6K1, decreases the expression of tumor suppressors  genes, promotes regeneration of muscle cells and hypertrophy of skeletal muscle, and reverses muscular atrophy and wasting via up regulation of its target gene, 22/June/2018, 2.50 pm

Introduction: What they say A study from Department of Biology, University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway; and Univ-Lyon, CarMeN Laboratory, INSERM 1060, INRA 1397, Université Claude Bernard […]
