Transactivation properties of the fish PPARs

The transactivation properties of the plaice, sea bream, and Atlantic salmon PPARs have been studied in two fish-derived, established cell lines, i.e. the sea bass larval (SBL) and the Atlantic salmon (AS) cell lines.

This result demonstrates that the above cell lines can be successfully used for transfection purposes with PPARs and PPAR-regulated reporter constructs in order to identify specific fish PPAR activators.
