Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) is a transcription factor that regulates lipid metabolism and inflammatory responses. Certain PPARγ ligands improve nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The role of PPARγ itself in NASH remains poorly understood. The functional consequences of PPARγ in the development of steatohepatitis through gene deficiency or gene overexpression of PPARγ delivered by adenovirus (Ad-PPARγ) were examined. Our results show that PPARγ-deficient (PPAR… CONTINUE READING
