Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma coactivator 1-alpha

UniProt Number: Q9UBK2
Alternate Names: PPARGC1A,LEM6, PGC1, PGC1A, PPARGC1
Structure and Function: PGC1 alpha is a transcriptional coactivator that regulates the genes involved in energy metabolism. This protein interacts with the nuclear receptor PPAR-γ, which permits the interaction of this protein with multiple transcription factors. This protein can interact with, and regulate the activities of, cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB) and nuclear respiratory factors (NRFs). It provides a direct link between external physiological stimuli and the regulation of mitochondrial biogenesis, and is a major factor that regulates muscle fiber type determination. Endurance exercise has been shown to activate the PGC-1alpha gene in human skeletal muscle. This protein may be also involved in controlling blood pressure, regulating cellular cholesterol homoeostasis, and the development of obesity.
Disease Associations:  Obesity
