Expression and function of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma in mesangial cells.

Abstract

P:eroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARgamma) is a novel nuclear receptor, which enhances insulin-mediated glucose uptake. Ligands to PPARgamma are currently used as therapy for type II diabetes. Using Western blot analysis, RNase protection assay, and immunostaining, we identified the presence of PPARgamma message and protein in cultured… (More)
