Anti-SARS-CoV-2 activities in vitro of Shuanghuanglian preparations and bioactive ingredients
TLDR
Baicalin and baicalein, two ingredients of Shuanghuanglian, were characterized as the first noncovalent, nonpeptidomimetic inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 3CLpro and exhibited potent antiviral activities in a cell-based system.
Discovery of baicalin and baicalein as novel, natural product inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 3CL protease in vitro
TLDR
Baicalin and baicalein were identified as the first non-covalent, non-peptidomimetic inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 3CLpro and exhibited potent antiviral activities in a cell-based system.
Activation of AMPK by Bitter Melon Triterpenoids Involves CaMKKβ
TLDR
It is proposed that CaMKKβ is a key upstream kinase for BMT-induced activation of AMPK, a leading anti-diabetic drug target.
Identification of pyrogallol as a warhead in design of covalent inhibitors for the SARS-CoV-2 3CL protease
TLDR
The discovery of myricetin, a flavonoid found in many food sources, is described, as a non-peptidomimetic and covalent inhibitor of the SARS-CoV-2 3CLpro, highlighting the potential of pyrogallol as an alternative warhead in design of targeted covalant ligands.
