Gene Information

human ... PPARG(5468)


GW1929 has been used as a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) ligand:
  • to study its effects on plant homeodomain finger protein 16 (Phf16) and patatin-like phospholipase domain containing 3 (Pnpla3) expression involved in adipogenesis
  • to study its effects on complement component 3 (C3) gene expression in human hepatoma cells
  • to activate PPARγ in human breast cancer cells

Biochem/physiol Actions

GW1929 is a non-thiazolidinedione and is involved in cell growth inhibition and regulating gene expression. It exhibits neuroprotective effects against global cerebral ischemic-reperfusion injury by DNA fragmentation and minimizing the inflammation. GW1929 participates in the inhibition of α7 N-acetylcholine receptor expression and promoter activity. It also influences the early growth response-1 (Egr-1) protein expression.
GW1929 is a high affinity agonist of PPAR-γ.

Adipocyte differentiation is controlled by multiple signaling pathways. To identify new adipogenic factors, C3H10T1/2 adipocytes were treated with previously known antiadipogenic phytochemicals (resveratrol, butein, sulfuretin, and fisetin) for 24 hours. Commonly regulated genes were then identified by transcriptional profiling analysis. Three...

Studies demonstrated that peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ) ligands reduce nicotine-induced non small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) cell growth through inhibition of nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) mediated signaling pathways. However, the mechanisms by which PPARγ ligands inhibited nAChR expression remain...

Transient global cerebral ischemia results in acute neurodegeneration in selective brain areas. Global cerebral ischemic-reperfusion (IR) injury induced selective hippocampal damage results into various neurobehavioral deficits including spatial memory and learning deficiencies. In this study, we have investigated the protective...

C3 is an acute phase protein, and thus its plasma concentration increases quickly and drastically during the onset of inflammation. Insulin plays a complex role in inflammation. Elevated level of plasma C3 was shown to correlate with heightened fasting insulin...
