Interaction Information:

Comment Nuclear receptors, including the family of PPAR-alpha, -delta, and -gamma, have emerged as important mediators of insulin sensitivity. 1H-NMR-, LC-MS-, and GC-MS-based methods were used to compare PPAR-alpha null and wild-type mice. The authors reported decreases in glucose, glutamine, and alanine levels and an increase in lactate, suggesting an increase in utilization of glucose and amino acids, as might be predicted from the known effects of PPAR-alpha to promote the opposing pathways of beta-oxidation, ketogenesis, and gluconeogenesis.
