MODULATION OF mTOR RECEPTOR IN DIABETIC NEPHROPATHY BY SANTALIN A OF LAL CHANDAN (PTEROCARPUS SANTALINUS): AN IN-SILICO ASSESSMENT BY MOLECULAR DOCKING
Background: Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is a primary cause of end-stage renal disease globally. Activation of mTOR and reduced autophagy has been identified as one of the pathogenic pathways. The presently available drugs have been successful in inhibiting the mTOR signaling, but show low oral bioavailability and suboptimal solubility. Rapamycin is a selective inhibitor of mTOR, shown significant pr...
