Gene: Pparg (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pparg
Name: peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity; estrogen receptor binding activity; and protein phosphatase binding activity. Predicted to contribute to sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to lipid; regulation of cellular macromolecule biosynthetic process; and response to vitamin. Localizes to cytosol; nucleus; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Used to study several diseases, including acute kidney failure; artery disease (multiple); pancreatitis; polycystic kidney disease; and transient cerebral ischemia. Biomarker of several diseases, including alcoholic cardiomyopathy; diabetic encephalopathy; hyperandrogenism; obesity; and transient cerebral ischemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including cardiovascular system disease (multiple); end stage renal failure; familial combined hyperlipidemia; lipodystrophy (multiple); and obesity. Orthologous to human PPARG (peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma); PARTICIPATES IN DNA modification pathway; Wnt signaling, non-canonical pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; (+)-catechin; (+)-schisandrin B.
