Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors: from genes to physiology.


The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARalpha, gamma, delta) are members of the nuclear receptor superfamily of ligand-activated transcription factors that have central roles in the storage and catabolism of fatty acids. Although the three PPAR subtypes are closely related and bind to similar DNA response elements as heterodimers with the 9-cis… (More)
