New research in molecular dynamics supported by UMH Supercomputing Cluster


New works relative to the contribution of the different compounds present in the LC extract on the AMPK activation capacity of the whole extract have been supported by the UMH Supercomputing Cluster (Castleblack). It is a new paper published in which is collected computing work done in the cluster of the UMH.

Lippia citriodora (LC) represents a complex plant-derived source of polyphenols and iridoids that has shown beneficial properties against obesity-related metabolic disorders. The complete extract and its major compound, verbascoside, have shown AMPK-activating capacity in cell and animal models.

The paper has been titled as “The potential synergistic modulation of AMPK by Lippia citriodora compounds as a target in metabolic disorders”, and has been published at Nutrients Journal (DOI
