PPAR alpha Summary

Description: A nuclear transcription factor. Heterodimerization with RETINOID X RECEPTOR GAMMA is important to metabolism of LIPIDS. It is the target of FIBRATES to control HYPERLIPIDEMIAS.

Also Known As: Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor alpha; Peroxisome Proliferator Activated Receptor alpha; PPARalpha
