Summary PPAR-[delta] was activated with GW501516 in HepG2 cells and the gene transcripts and protein expression of ACC2, CPTI and LPL were quantified with end-point PCR, real-time Q-PCR and Western blot. The gene expression of CPTI was also analyzed in rat L6 skeletal muscle cells. It was observed that activation of PPAR-[delta] with an agonist reduces fatty acid synthesis and enhances genes involved in fatty acid oxidation in the liver. This therefore suggests a switch from a fat-storing pathway to a fat-burning pathway in the liver and a switch of fatty acid oxidation from skeletal muscle cells to liver cells for energy supply.
