Downregulation of Lactoferrin by PPARα Ligands: Role in Perturbation of Hepatocyte Proliferation and Apoptosis

PPARα (peroxisome proliferator activated receptor α) is a transcription factor that mediates the rodent liver tumorigenic responses to peroxisome proliferators via regulation of genes that remain to be identified. Using microarray gene expression profiling of mRNA from wild type versus PPARα null mice, we detected a 3- to 7-fold downregulation of hepatic lactoferrin (LF) in ...

Tesaglitazar, a PPARα/γ Agonist, Induces Interstitial Mesenchymal Cell DNA Synthesis and Fibrosarcomas in Subcutaneous Tissues in Rats

The development of the dual peroxisome proliferator–activated receptor (PPAR) α/γ agonist tesaglitazar as an oral antidiabetic was recently discontinued. Here we present tumor data from a 2-year carcinogenicity study in rats given 0.3, 1, 3, and 10 μmol/kg tesaglitazar is presented with focus on the findings of subcutaneous fibrosarcomas. To investigate the mechanism for induction ...
