Elabela peptide: an emerging target in therapeutics
Curr Drug Targets. 2022 Aug 26. doi: 10.2174/1389450123666220826160123. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTElabela, a bioactive micropeptide, is recognized as the second endogenous ligand for Apelin receptor and is widely distributed in different tissues and organs. Elabela plays important role in various physiological processes such blood pressure control, heart morphogenesis, apoptosis, angiogenesis, cell proliferation, migration, etc. Elabela is also implicated in pathological conditions like cardiac dysfunctions, heart failure, hypertension, kidney diseases, cancer and CNS disorders. The association of Elabela with these di...

Fibrinogen, Fibrin, and Fibrin Degradation Products in COVID-19
Curr Drug Targets. 2022 Aug 26. doi: 10.2174/1389450123666220826162900. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTSevere Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is the highly pathogenic and highly transmissible human coronavirus that is the causative agent for the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 manifests predominantly as a respiratory illness with symptoms consistent with a viral pneumonia, but other organ systems (e.g., kidney, heart, brain) can also become perturbed in COVID-19 patients. Accumulating data suggest that significant activation of the hemostatic system is a common pathological manifestation of SARS-...

Targeting AMPK Signaling in the Liver: Implications for Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
Curr Drug Targets. 2022;23(11):1057-1071. doi: 10.2174/1389450123666220429082702.ABSTRACTObesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), as common metabolic diseases, are pathologically characterized by overnutrition and insulin resistance (IR), which subsequently lead to glucose and lipid metabolism disorders. The liver, a major metabolic organ of the body, integrates hormone and metabolic signals to regulate the synthesis of lipids and glucose as well as their transport to peripheral tissues, hence playing an essential role in the development of obesity and T2DM. Adenosine 5'-monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) is...

Combinational Approaches Targeting Various Aspects Involved in Intestinal Barrier Dysfunction-Induced Anxiety
Curr Drug Targets. 2022;23(11):1085-1098. doi: 10.2174/1389450123666220428093419.ABSTRACTAnxiety disorder is one of the most prevalent psychiatric disorders. The high prevalence of comorbid gastrointestinal disorders and anxiety, as well as various limitations in current therapy, have necessitated the search for alternative techniques. The Gut-Brain Axis is the connecting link between the gut and the brain. One of the reasons for the Gut-Brain Axis malfunction resulting in HPA axis stimulation and anxiety is intestinal barrier dysfunction. Gut microorganisms, lipopolysaccharides, and other factors can stimulate the disrupt...
