Peroxisome proliferator‑activated receptor γ (PPARγ) may play an important role in lipid metabolism directly or by inducing the transcription of target genes. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between common variants at the PPARγ locus (C1431T and Pro12Ala polymorphisms) and lipid serum levels. The studied population consisted(More)
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) is a nuclear receptor involved in the regulation of several biochemical pathways. Blood pressure-lowering effects have been found in PPARγ agonists in several hypertensive models. The biology and research data related to the gene suggest that it could play a role in essential hypertension (EH)(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between ten single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) α/δ/γ and essential hypertension (EH). METHODS Participants were recruited within the framework of a cohort populations survey from the PMMJS (Prevention of Multiple Metabolic Disorders and MS in Jiangsu(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of ten SNP at peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARα, δ, γ) with hypertriglyceridemia and the gene-gene interaction. METHODS Participants were recruited from the Prevention of MetS and Multi-metabolic Disorders in Jiangsu province of China Study (PMMJS). A total of 820 subjects were selected from the(More)
The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs)-α,-β/δ and -γ are the ligand-activated transcription factors that function as the master regulators of glucose, fatty acid and lipoprotein metabolism, energy balance, cell proliferation and differentiation, inflammation and atherosclerosis. This study examined the main effects of both single-locus and(More)
The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs)-α, -β/δ, and -γ are the ligand-activated transcription factors that function as the master regulators of glucose, fatty acid and lipoprotein metabolism, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. Our aim was to test the association between ten single nucleotide polymorphisms of PPARs and CRP level, as well as(More)
The PPAR α and PPAR γ are the key messengers responsible for the translation of nutritional stimuli into changes for the expression of genes, particularly genes involved in lipid metabolism. However, the associations between PPAR α / γ polymorphisms and lipid serum levels in the general population were rarely studied, and the conclusions were conflicting.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of ten single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (α, δ, γ) with low high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) hyperlipidemia and the additional role of a gene-gene interactions among the 10 SNPs. METHODS Participants were recruited under the framework of the PMMJS(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the roles of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) on the levels of serum C-reactive protein(CRP)and the interactions of PPARs haplotypes with abnormal body weight. METHODS Subjects(n = 644)were randomly selected from the cohort 'Prevention of Multiple metabolic disorders and Metabolic syndrome in Jiangsu(More)
