PPAR delta Activation

The PPAR-delta receptor activates certain genes in a muscle cell, resulting in the burning of fat. This video shows The PPAR-delta receptor activation in a mouse muscle cell. PPAR-delta is one of a family of receptors that is related to the metabolism and storing of fat. Like PPAR-gamma, it also activates certain genes. However, PPAR-delta's activation signals the muscle cell to burn fat for energy. This led to the creation of a PPAR-delta-activated mouse, which can run significantly longer distances than regular mice, and which are more resistant to obesity. Source: HHMI
