Interaction Information:

Comment It could be convincingly demonstrated that the mouse genes encoding the carnitine transporter novel organic cation transporter 2 (OCTN2/SLC22A5) and two enzymes of the carnitine biosynthetic pathway, gamma-butyrobetaine dioxygenase (BBOX1) and 4-trimethylaminobutyraldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH9A1), are direct PPARalpha target genes as evidenced by the identification of functional peroxysome proliferator responsive elements (PPRE) within the regulatory region of the respective genes.
