Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A recombinant Huh7-PPRE-Luc cell line for analyzing the peroxisome proliferator response element (PPRE)-driven luciferase activity was established. The cells exhibited a good dose-response induction in PPRE-driven luciferase activity by three subtypes of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) agonists as well as by a retinoid X receptor agonist, 9-cis-retinoic acid. Among five environmental chemicals tested, benzyl butyl phthalate and bisphenol induced PPRE-driven luciferase activation in Huh7-PPRE-Luc cells and caused adipogenic differentiation of 3T3-L1 cells. This recombinant Huh7-PPRE-Luc cell line would be useful for screening potential environmental obesogens with PPAR activity.
