PPARG Protein Crystal

Background
Background
PPARG regulates fatty acid storage and glucose metabolism. Many insulin sensitizing drugs used in the treatment of diabetes target PPARG as a means to lower serum glucose without increasing pancreatic insulin secretion. The genes activated by PPARG stimulate lipid uptake and adipogenesis by fat cells. PPARG knockout mice fail to generate adipose tissue when fed a high fat diet.
