The transactivating function of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma is negatively regulated by SUMO conjugation in the amino-terminal domain.

Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-gamma2, a member of the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily, plays a key role in adipocyte differentiation. Its amino-terminal region carries a ligand-independent gene-activating function, AF-1, and is composed of activation as well as repression domains. We have found PPARgamma2 and its isoform, PPARgamma1… CONTINUE READING
