Peroxisomes are ubiquitous organelles required for several metabolic functions. Their dysfunction is responsible for a group of human inherited disorders. In the search for endogenous factors regulating the peroxisomal compartment in normal liver, we treated female rats with dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) and 25-hydroxycholecalciferol for 1 and 6 days. Relative transcription levels of 39 selected genes were evaluated by real-time quantitative RT-PCR analysis. Catalase (peroxisomal marker… CONTINUE READING
