Abstract: Hair follicle, a mini-organ developed in the epithelial layer is one of the complex structural and functional unit of the hair growth. In this review, we discuss about the Androgenetic alopecia, where miniature of the hair takes place converting testosterone to dihydrotestosterone by 5-alpha reductase. We also discuss about LHX2, which is responsible for the initiation of anagen phase of hair growth. Prostaglandin D2 synthase converts PGH2 to PGD2, which leads to the hair loss. Few key players in the epigenetic modification process like DNMT1, DNMT3a, DNMT3b, DNMT3L and TETs group of proteins, which gives structural stability to the gene and expression, play an important role in hair growth. We review the previous and future possibilities of drug design for preventing hair loss with the help of molecular docking performed on these players as well as on Prostaglandin D2 synthase.
