Peroxisome proliferators and thyroid hormones have overlapping metabolic effects and regulate a similar subset of genes involved in maintaining lipid homeostasis. Transcriptional activation by peroxisome proliferators is mediated by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) that bind to specific peroxisome proliferator-response elements (PPREs)(More)
The promoter regions of the genes encoding the first two enzymes of the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway, acyl-CoA oxidase (AOx) and enoyl-CoA hydratase/3-hydroxyacyl-CoA dehydrogenase (HD), contain transcriptional regulatory sequences termed peroxisome proliferator-response elements (PPRE) that are bound by the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAR) modulate transcription by binding to specific peroxisome proliferator-response elements (PPRE) through heterodimerization with the 9-cis retinoic acid receptor (RXR). To investigate potential subtype- and response element-dependent differences in transcriptional activation by PPARs, we expressed PPARalpha(More)
This paper considers the adequacy of simple access to technology for acquiring active citizenship skills. The paper posits questions and then provides tentative answers to the questions: Is acquiring the latest technology a prerequisite for Kenyan students to join the social media revolution? Is access to the latest developments in digital social media(More)
