Abstract:
The nuclear receptor Hepatocyte Nuclear Factor 4α (HNF4α; NR2A1) regulates the transcription of many genes involved in glucose and lipid metabolism. Genetic linkage analyses have implicated HNF4α in the disease processes leading to Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and dyslipidaemia. The aim of this study was to investigate the regulation of tf target genes in the metabolic pathways of glycolysis, lipogenesis and gluconeogenesis by HNF4α.
