Summary of "Metformin protects rotenone-induced dopaminergic neurodegeneration by reducing lipid peroxidation."

Metformin, a widely prescribed antidiabetic drug, has been suggested to have a neuroprotective effect on 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-induced neurotoxicity in mice. In this study, we investigated the neuroprotective potential of metformin against rotenone-induced dopaminergic neuron damage and its underlying mechanisms.

Neuroprotective effect of metformin on dopaminergic neurodegeneration and α-synuclein aggregation in C. elegans model of Parkinson's disease.

Parkinson's disease (PD), the second most progressive neurodegenerative disease causing motor impairment and defective cognitive function, has been a burden to the quality of life for decades and rema...

LRRK2 inhibition prevents endolysosomal deficits seen in human Parkinson's disease.

LRRK2 has been implicated in endolysosomal function and likely plays a central role in idiopathic Parkinson's disease (iPD). In iPD, dopaminergic neurons within the substantia nigra are characterized ...

Metformin protects from bleomycin-induced bactericide via enhanced generation of hydrogen peroxide.

Bleomycin is a glycopeptide antibiotic that is widely employed in the therapy of a range of lymphomas and germ cell tumours. But the therapeutic efficacy of bleomycin is limited by development of lung...

Metformin promotes osteogenic differentiation and protects against oxidative stress-induced damage in periodontal ligament stem cells via activation of the Akt/Nrf2 signaling pathway.

Periodontal ligament stem cell (PDLSC)-based tissue engineering is an important method for regenerating lost bone in periodontitis. Maintaining or enhancing the osteogenic differentiation of PDLSCs, a...

Dopaminergic neuron injury in Parkinson's disease is mitigated by interfering lncRNA SNHG14 expression to regulate the miR-133b/ α-synuclein pathway.

This study explored the influence of long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) SNHG14 on α-synuclein (α-syn) expression and Parkinson's disease (PD) pathogenesis. Firstly, we found that the expression level of S...

Metformin for Treatment of Psoriasis Combined With Disorders of Glucose and Lipid Metabolism

Psoriasis and metabolic disorders are well-known mutual comorbidities. The investigators hypothesized metformin can ameliorate both psoriasis and metabolic disorders mainly via gut microbi...

Development of Imaging, Clinical and Biochemical Bio-Markers for Parkinson's Disease

We propose to build on preliminary data evaluating non-dopaminergic/non-motor clinical biomarkers to more fully assess these markers at the threshold of Parkinson disease (PD). Developmen...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A biguanide hypoglycemic agent used in the treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus not responding to dietary modification. Metformin improves glycemic control by improving insulin sensitivity and decreasing intestinal absorption of glucose. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p289)

A pharmaceutical preparation of sitagliptin phosphate and metformin hydrochloride that is used in the treatment of TYPE 2 DIABETES.

Conditions characterized by abnormal lipid deposition due to disturbance in lipid metabolism, such as hereditary diseases involving lysosomal enzymes required for lipid breakdown. They are classified either by the enzyme defect or by the type of lipid involved.

Protein components on the surface of LIPOPROTEINS. They form a layer surrounding the hydrophobic lipid core. There are several classes of apolipoproteins with each playing a different role in lipid transport and LIPID METABOLISM. These proteins are synthesized mainly in the LIVER and the INTESTINES.

A family of vertebrate and insect lipid droplet associated proteins. They consist of a conserved N-terminal PAT domain (an alpha-helical region of about 110 amino acids), an 11-mer repeat region, and lipid-binding hydrophobic regions or 4-helix bundles near their C-termini. Perilipins transiently or constitutively localize to LIPID DROPLETS in ADIPOCYTES and FOAM CELLS, especially in regions adjacent to the PLASMA MEMBRANE and ENDOPLASMIC RECTICULUM. They are critical for lipid droplet synthesis and homeostasis as well as the regulation of lipid metabolism. Genetic variations in perilipins are associated with ATHEROSCLEROSIS; OBESITY; and DIABETES MELLITUS.
