F Li et al, 2021. Systematic analysis of the molecular mechanisms mediated by coffee in Parkinson’s disease based on network pharmacology approach, Journal of Functional Foods, Volume 87.
Many epidemiological studies have associated coffee consumption with a reduced Parkinson’s disease (PD) risk, but the molecular mechanisms remain unclear. In this study, systematic pharmacological and bioinformatics approaches were employed to explore the bioactive components and potential mechanisms mediated by coffee in PD. We identified 12 active compounds in coffee associated with 47 PD-related targets, which might exert synergism because some targets were enriched in multiple signaling pathways and biological processes. The compound–target network and protein–protein interaction network exemplified the multi-component and multitarget effect mediated by coffee in PD. Furthermore, a molecular docking assessment verified the great activity between active compounds identified in coffee and PD-related targets. These results showed that the bioactive components of coffee exerted synergistic effects against PD-associated targets through numerous pathways and provided a new perspective for scientific research exploring the multi-component and multi-target mechanisms mediated by coffee in PD.
Ja tak, jeg vil gerne modtage nyhedsbrev, når der er noget nyt om kaffe og helbred.
