The FABP4 gene is transcribed to yield mRNA and the mRNA is translated to yield protein. Expression of FABP4 is activated during adipogenesis.

Summation

The PPARG:RXRA heterodimer bound to fatty acids activates transcription of FABP4 (aP2). In mouse the Pparg:Rxra heterodimer directly binds the promoter of the Fabp4 gene (Grontveld et al. 2010, Ge et al. 2008, Lefterova et al. 2008)

Regulator
Summation

As inferred from mouse, Cdk4 interacts with PPARG and enhances transcription. Binding of the two factors was tested on the FABP4 (aP2) promoter.
