Exercise Hormone May Modulate Genes Associated With SARS-CoV-2

Publicado em 21 setembro 2020
A study conducted by researchers at São Paulo State University (UNESP) suggests that irisin, a hormone secreted from muscles in response to exercise, could have a therapeutic effect on COVID-19 patients. When they analyzed adipose cell gene expression, the researchers found that irisin modulated genes associated with replication of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in human cells. This finding was based on analysis of the transcriptome (all RNAs produced by genes) of adipose cells not [...]
