Fatty acids, eicosanoids and PPAR gamma.
Rouen, France. In Eur J Pharmacol, Dec 2015
UNASSIGNED: Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) belongs to the family of nuclear nuclear receptors and is mainly expressed in adipose tissue, hematopoietic cells and the large intestine.
The role of PPAR-gamma receptor in pruritus.
Tehrān, Iran. In Eur J Pharmacol, Oct 2015
Recent studies have clarified the novel mediators and neuronal pathways involved in itch transmission, which might result in introduction of new therapies for management of pruritus in the near future.
PPAR gamma gene--a review.
India. In Diabetes Metab Syndr, 2015
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) has been the focus of intense research because ligands for this receptor have emerged as potent insulin sensitizers used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.
A new role for cyclic phosphatidic acid as a PPARgamma antagonist.
San Diego, United States. In Cell Metab, 2010
A recent study in Molecular Cell (Tsukahara et al., 2010) identifies cyclic phosphatidic acid (CPA) as a naturally occurring PPARgamma antagonist that can be generated from lysophospholipids by signal-dependent activation of phospholipase D2.
Fingered for a fat fate.
Philadelphia, United States. In Cell Metab, 2010
Differentiation of preadipocytes to adipocytes is controlled by the nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma), but little is known about earlier transcriptional events in mesenchymal stem cells that define the adipocyte lineage.
