Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
THIAZOLES with two keto oxygens. Members are insulin-sensitizing agents which overcome INSULIN RESISTANCE by activation of the peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma).
Peroxisome Proliferator-activated Receptors
TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS that are activated by ligands and heterodimerize with RETINOID X RECEPTORS and bind to peroxisome proliferator response elements in the promoter regions of target genes.
Retinoid X Receptor Gamma
A nuclear transcription factor. Heterodimerization with PPAR ALPHA is important to metabolism of LIPIDS.
A nuclear transcription factor. Heterodimerization with RETINOID X RECEPTOR GAMMA is important to metabolism of LIPIDS. It is the target of FIBRATES to control HYPERLIPIDEMIAS.
Retinoid X Receptor Alpha
A nuclear transcription factor. Heterodimerization with PPAR GAMMA is important in regulation of GLUCOSE metabolism and CELL GROWTH PROCESSES.
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPAR-gamma) is required for the conversion of pre-adipocytes. However, the mechanism underlying activation of PPAR-gamma is unclear. Here we showed th...
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) γ ligands oppose the effect induced by angiotensin II (Ang II) to reduce oxidative stress and improve antioxidant status. In this study, Ang II inhib...
Full and partial peroxisome proliferation-activated receptor-gamma agonists, but not delta agonist, rescue of dopaminergic neurons in the 6-OHDA Parkinsonian model is associated with inhibition of microglial activation and MMP expression.
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) is a nuclear hormone receptor that has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) inhibitor properties. PPARγ ag...
One of the master regulators of adipogenesis and macrophage function is peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPARγ). Here, we report that a deficiency of β-arrestin-1 expression affects PP...
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) may serve as a useful target for drug development in non-diabetic diseases. However, some colorectal cancer cells are resistant to PPARγ agonist...
To test the hypothesis that PPAR-gamma agonist, rosiglitazone, induces carotid plaque regression in diabetic ESRD patients on maintenance PD via its anti-inflammatory property.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether rosiglitazone, a peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma (PPAR-gamma) agonist, induces regression in carotid atherosclerotic plaq...
To study whether peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma activation in peritoneal dialysis patients will reduce inflammation, atherosclerosis, calcification and improve survival o...
The substantially increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality rates in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients cannot be sufficiently explained by traditional coronary risk factors. It...
According to the above evidence, though the exact mechanism contributing to the Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) associated peripheral edema is still unclear, the investigators hypothesize that t...
