Coronavirus News: A new study by researchers from King Abdulaziz University-Saudi Arabia and Taibah University-Saudi-Arabia alarmingly points out that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus could also target the dopamine and dopaminergic receptors and co-receptors and that dopamine-release mechanisms in the central nervous system may play a major role in the entry and propagation of the SARS-CoV-2 coronaviruses.


 
The study findings were published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Taibah University Medical Sciences. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S165836122030158X
 
Day by day, new revelations are emerging about the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and its pathogenesis.
 
It is well established that the SARS-CoV-2 enters the body through cellular gateways using a multitude of receptors not just the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2).
 
A team of scientists now reveal that dopamine-release mechanisms in the brain may play a pivotal role in the entry and spread of coronaviruses.
 
The study from Saudi Arabia aimed to investigate the contribution of morbidities and related prescribed medications to COVID-19 associated mortality.
