Tissue-specific Expression of Two Peroxisomal 3-ketoacyl-CoA Thiolase Genes in Wild and PPARα-null Mice and Induction by Fenofibrate
Our laboratory cloned two peroxisomal 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase genes in mouse. These genes were named mThA (mouse peroxisomal Thiolase A) and mThB (mouse peroxisomal Thiolase B) by comparison with peroxisomal thiolase genes known in rat (Hijikata et al. 1990, Bodnar & Rachubinski, 1990). In this study, we analysed the tissue expression of the two thiolase genes on wild and on PPARa-null mice.
