Abstract: Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARgamma) is a ligand-activated transcription factor that plays a pivotal role in the modulation of gene expression involved in adipocyte differentiation and insulin sensitivity. It has been previously established that thiazolidinedione (TZD) PPARgamma ligands such as rosiglitazone have potent anti-diabetic and adipogenic activities. A novel non-TZD ligand for PPARgamma, KR62980 has recently been characterized to increase insulin sensitivity and to be weakly a…
