Pathway : PPAR signaling pathway

Identifier  03320 Description  Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors PPARs are nuclear hormone receptors that are activated by fatty acids and their derivatives PPAR has three subtypes PPARalpha, beta/delta, and gamma showing different expression patterns in vertebrates Each of them is encoded in a separate gene and binds fatty acids and eicosanoids PPARalpha plays a role in the clearance of circulating or cellular lipids via the regulation of gene expression involved in lipid metabolism in liver and skeletal muscle PPARbeta/delta is involved in lipid oxidation and cell proliferation PPARgamma promotes adipocyte differentiation to enhance blood glucose uptake
