The peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPARα) is a nuclear receptor that regulates the expression of genes involved in fatty acid metabolism, lipoprotein synthesis and metabolism, and inflammation.1,2,3 GW 6471 is an antagonist of PPARα (IC50 = 240 nM).4 It drives the displacement of coactivators from PPARα and promotes the recruitment of co-repressor proteins like nuclear co-repressor.4 GW 6471 is used in cell-free, cell lysate, and whole cell systems to examine the impact of PPARα antagonism.5,6,7
