Summary of "A bioinformatics and network pharmacology approach to the mechanisms of action of Shenxiao decoction for the treatment of diabetic nephropathy."

The epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of renal tubular epithelial cells is the main pathological alteration in diabetic nephropathy (DN). Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has been used for the treatment of DN in clinical practice and has been proven to be effective.

Cell surface proteins that bind glutamate and act through G-proteins to influence second messenger systems. Several types of metabotropic glutamate receptors have been cloned. They differ in pharmacology, distribution, and mechanisms of action.

The branch of pharmacology dealing especially with the action of drugs upon various parts of the nervous system.

The branch of pharmacology that deals directly with the effectiveness and safety of drugs in humans.

A class of drugs producing both physiological and psychological effects through a variety of mechanisms. They can be divided into "specific" agents, e.g., affecting an identifiable molecular mechanism unique to target cells bearing receptors for that agent, and "nonspecific" agents, those producing effects on different target cells and acting by diverse molecular mechanisms. Those with nonspecific mechanisms are generally further classed according to whether they produce behavioral depression or stimulation. Those with specific mechanisms are classed by locus of action or specific therapeutic use. (From Gilman AG, et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p252)

The metabolism of drugs and their mechanisms of action.
