Polymorphism in the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α gene influences the risk for Alzheimer’s disease

Abstract

 The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPAR-α) is a member of the steroid hormone super family of ligand-inducible transcription factors, involved in glucose and lipid metabolism. We screened for polymorphisms in the PPAR-α gene and detected two known polymorphisms located in exon 5 and intron 7. These polymorphisms were investigated for their… (More)
