Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPAR-alpha) is a type II nuclear receptor (its subcellular location is independent of ligand binding) related to PPAR-beta/delta and PPAR-gamma. PPAR-alpha is expressed highly in the liver where if functions to control lipid metabolism, especially fatty acid oxidation.
PPAR-alpha forms heterodimers with Retinoid X receptor alpha (RXR-alpha). The heterodimers bind peroxisome proliferator receptor elements (PPREs) in and around genes regulated by PPAR-alpha.
