is a medicinal plant consumed as a diuretic and anti-obesity remedy. Several pharmacological studies have shown its beneficial effects in metabolism. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors and ...
Dual peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)α/γ agonists that were developed to target hyperlipidemia and hyperglycemia in type 2 diabetes patients, caused cardiac dysfunction or other adv...
Monocyte chemoattractant protein-1-induced protein-1 (MCPIP1) acts as an endonuclease that degrades selected mRNAs, viral RNAs and pre-miRNAs. MCPIP1 inhibits adipogenesis by degradation of C/EBPβ mR...
Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptors (PPARs) are ligand-activated transcription factors that govern lipid and glucose homeostasis playing a central role in cardiovascular disease, obesity, and ...
The hypoxia of high-altitude (HA) residence increases the risk of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and preeclampsia 3-fold, augmenting perinatal morbidity and mortality and the risk for childhoo...
To study whether peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma activation in peritoneal dialysis patients will reduce inflammation, atherosclerosis, calcification and improve survival o...
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 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 objective of the study was to evaluate the levels of Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-γ), Nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB) and the presence of red complex microorg...
The purpose of this study is to asses changes in glycosylated hemoglobin, fasting blood lipids and genetic polymorphism's in peroxisomal proliferator activated receptors--gamma receptor af...
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).
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.
A transcriptional co-activator for NUCLEAR RECEPTORS. It is characterized by an N-terminal LxxLL sequence, a region that interacts with PPAR GAMMA, and a C-terminal RNA RECOGNITION MOTIF. It increases expression of MITOCHONDRIAL UNCOUPLING PROTEIN to regulate genes involved in metabolic reprogramming in response to dietary restriction and the integration of CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS with ENERGY METABOLISM.
A G-protein-coupled, proteinase-activated receptor that is expressed in a variety of tissues including ENDOTHELIUM; LEUKOCYTES; and the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. The receptor is activated by TRYPSIN, which cleaves off the N-terminal peptide from the receptor. The new N-terminal peptide is a cryptic ligand for the receptor. The uncleaved receptor can also be activated by the N-terminal peptide present on the activated THROMBIN RECEPTOR and by small synthetic peptides that contain the unmasked N-terminal sequence.
A mediator complex subunit that is believed to play a key role in the coactivation of nuclear receptor-activated transcription by the mediator complex. It interacts with a variety of nuclear receptors including RETINOIC ACID RECEPTORS; THYROID HORMONE RECEPTORS; VITAMIN D RECEPTORS; PEROXISOME PROLIFERATOR-ACTIVATED RECEPTORS; ESTROGEN RECEPTORS; and GLUCOCORTICOID RECEPTORS.
