Interaction Information:

Comment It has been postulated that the reduced transcript levels of the respective genes is due to disruption of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha) function in response to high-fat diet administration, because PPARalpha has been identified as a critical transcriptional regulator of BBD, TMABA-DH, and OCTN2 in mice, rats, and pigs.
