Abstract: Apolipoprotein E (apoE) is synthesized in many tissues, and the liver is the primary site from which apoE redistributes cholesterol and other lipids to peripheral tissues. Here we demonstrate that the TR4 orphan nuclear receptor (TR4) can induce apoE expression in HepG2 cells. This TR4-mediated regulation of apoE gene expression was further confirmed in vivo using TR4 knockout mice. Both serum apoE protein and liver apoE mRNA levels were significantly reduced in TR4 knockout mice. Gel shift and luciferase repo… Show more
