Interaction Information:

Comment Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha) is considered a master transcriptional regulator of lipid metabolism and energy homeostasis, because typical genes regulated by PPARalpha are involved in all aspects of fatty acid catabolism (cellular fatty acid uptake, activation of fatty acids, intracellular fatty acid transport, import of fatty acids into the mitochondria, and mitochondrial and peroxisomal fatty acid beta-oxidation), ketogenesis, as well as gluconeogenesis.
