Development of hMC1R Selective Small Agonists for Sunless Tanning and Prevention of Genotoxicity of UV in Melanocytes

Activation of the human melanocortin 1 receptor (hMC1R) expressed on melanocytes by α-melanocortin (α-MSH) performs a central function in regulating human pigmentation, and lowering the genotoxicity of ultraviolet radiation (UV) by activating DNA restore and antioxidant defenses. In the direction of growth of a hMC1R-targeted photoprotection technique we designed tetra- and tripeptide agonists with modifications

Design and Immunological Evaluation of a Hybrid Peptide as a Potent TLR2 Agonist by Structure-Based Virtual Screening

Immunity is a flexible defensive response that’s concerned in defending in opposition to illness by figuring out and destroying self and non-self dangerous substances. As a state of non permanent or everlasting immune dysfunction, immunosuppression could make an organism extra inclined to an infection, organ harm, and most cancers attributable to harm to the immune
