Description

Source: recombinant N-terminal hexahistidine-tagged protein expressed in E. coli · Mr: ~34 kDa · Protein concentration: 0.30 mg/ml · The peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR) family of ligand-activated transcription factors consists of three subtypes encoded by separate genes: PPARα, PPARδ (also referred to as hNUC1, PPARβ, or FAAR), and PPARγ.1 Among them PPARγ is the most widely studied and has been implicated in the pathology of numerous diseases including obesity, diabetes, atherosclerosis, and cancer.1,2 Structurally, PPARγ can be described by two primary domains - a ligand binding domain (LBD) and a DNA binding domain (DBD).2,3 Binding of activating ligands to the LBD promotes heterodimerization with retinoic acid-like receptor (RXR) resulting in the regulated expression of target genes, a significant number of which are related to lipid metabolism.1 Select members of the thiazolidinedione class of PPARγ ligands, which includes rosiglitazone and pioglitazone, are currently used for the treatment of insulin resistance associated with type II diabetes.4 Cayman’s PPARγ LBD is expressed and purified from E. coli. The purity was determined using gel electrophoresis followed by coomassie staining and western blot analysis using a PPARγ polyclonal antibody. The functionality was tested using a fluorescent ligand binding assay.
