Therapeutics: G protein-coupled receptor 91 (GPR91, SUCNR1)

Autoimmune disease INDICATION: Rheumatoid arthritis Cell culture, patient sample and mouse studies suggest inhibiting GPR91 could help treat rheumatoid arthritis. In bone marrow-derived mouse macrophages cultured in synovial fluid from RA patients, GPR91 knockout decreased...

Reining in Renin

Although antihypertensives have become the standard of care in diabetic nephropathy, the mechanistic link between hyperglycemia and blood pressure, as well as between hyperglycemia and potential downstream renal damage, has remained elusive. 1 A paper...
