PPAR alpha structure-function relationships derived from species-specific differences in responsiveness to hypolipidemic agents.

The nuclear receptor PPAR alpha is a key regulatory transcription factor in lipid homeostasis, some liver detoxification processes and the control of inflammation. Recent findings suggest that many hypolipidemic drugs and anti-inflammatory agents can potentially act by binding to PPAR alpha and inducing its activity. Here, we identify some structure… CONTINUE READING
