Gene: Ppara (peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ppara
Name: peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha
Description: Exhibits several functions, including MDM2/MDM4 family protein binding activity; nuclear receptor activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral response to nicotine; negative regulation of cell growth involved in cardiac muscle cell development; and response to insulin. Localizes to nucleus. Used to study hepatocellular carcinoma; hypertension; hypertensive encephalopathy; and periodontitis. Biomarker of alcoholic hepatitis; fatty liver disease; hydrocephalus; and hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; coronary artery disease; hepatocellular carcinoma; lipid metabolism disorder; and myocardial infarction. Orthologous to human PPARA (peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha); PARTICIPATES IN eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; hepatitis C pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-catechin; (+)-schisandrin B; (R)-carnitine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: nuclear receptor subfamily 1 group C member 1; peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha; PPAR; PPAR-alpha
