Gene: PPARA (peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PPARA
Name: peroxisome proliferator activated receptor alpha
CRRD ID: 737309
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription factor activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II repressing transcription factor binding activity; and ubiquitin conjugating enzyme binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of lipid storage; negative regulation of macrophage derived foam cell differentiation; and regulation of nucleobase-containing compound metabolic process. Localizes to nucleoplasm. Implicated in Alzheimer's disease; coronary artery disease; hepatocellular carcinoma; lipid metabolism disorder; and myocardial infarction. Biomarker of cystic fibrosis and fatty liver disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
