Acidic tumor microenvironment and pH-sensing G protein-coupled receptors.
Greenville, United States. In Front Physiol, 2012
Recent studies show that the pH-sensing GPCRs, including GPR4, GPR65 (TDAG8), GPR68 (OGR1), and GPR132 (G2A), regulate cancer cell metastasis and proliferation, immune cell function, inflammation, and blood vessel formation.
HMGB1-directed drug discovery targeting cutaneous inflammatory dysregulation.
Tucson, United States. In Curr Drug Metab, 2010
Small molecule drugs that may provide therapeutic benefit through HMGB1-directed mechanisms involve HMGB1 inhibitory ligands, Toll-like receptor antagonists, RAGE antagonists, alpha7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonists, G2A antagonists, serine protease inhibitors, and alpha-dicarbonyl-based soft electrophiles.
