Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) act through peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR) γ to increase insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes (T2DM), but deleterious effects of these ligands mean that selective modulators with improved clinical profiles are needed. We obtained a crystal structure of PPARγ ligand binding domain (LBD) and found that the ligand(More)
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) display anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic properties by inhibiting cyclooxygenases and blocking prostaglandin production. Previous studies, however, suggested that some NSAIDs also modulate peroxisome proliferator activated receptors (PPARs), raising the possibility that such off target effects(More)
Adipose tissue inflammation increases with obesity, but adipocyte vs. immune cell contributions are unclear. In the present study, transcriptome analyses were performed on highly-purified subcutaneous adipocytes from lean and obese women, and differentially expressed genes/pathways were determined in both adipocyte and stromal vascular fraction (SVF)(More)
