Brain PPARγ Promotes Obesity and is Required for the Insulin–Sensitizing Effect of Thiazolidinediones


In adipose tissue, muscle, liver and macrophages, signaling by the nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator–activated receptor-γ (PPAR-γ) is a determinant of insulin sensitivity and this receptor mediates the insulin–sensitizing effects of thiazolidinediones (TZDs). As PPAR-γ is also expressed in neurons, we generated mice with neuron-specific Pparg… (More)
