Adipose tissue, pancreatic beta cells, macrophages and vascular endothelium), albeit at low levels, while PPARg2 is expressed almost exclusively in adipose tissue [24]. Like other nuclear receptors, PPARg has a modular structure consisting of distinct functional domains (Fig. 1a). Many of its biological effects are mediated through direct regulation of target gene transcription in a ligand-dependent manner. Following binding to specific DNA response elements (PPAR response elements (PPREs) – located in the target gene promoter) as a heterodimer with the retinoid X receptor (RXR), binding of cognate or exogenous ligand(s) induces coactivator recruitment, which in turn promotes unfolding of the chromatin structure to permit greater levels of gene transcription (Fig.

Increased glucose uptake into adipocytes contributes to whole body glucose disposal, and provides important substrate for triglyceride synthesis (see above). However, it remains to be seen whether similar direct effects on glucose uptake are also operational in skeletal muscle, where much lower levels of PPARg expression are observed, but where the majority ($80%) of glucose disposal occurs. Unfortunately, conflicting findings in the two existing mouse models of muscle-specific Pparg deletion have so far failed to resolve this issue [61,62].
