Name
PPAR-γ coactivator 1 β
Symbol
PGC-1β

Overview

PGC-1β is a protein related to the cold-inducible coactivator PGC-1 α, and has been shown to coactivate several members of the nuclear receptor superfamily of transcription factors. Like PGC1-α, it is highly expressed in brown fat and heart and induced in the liver during fasting, indicating a potential role in hepatic gluconeogenesis.

Expression

PGC-1β is detectable at elevated levels in heart and skeletal muscle, with lower levels in brain, kidney, liver, adrenal gland, ovary, intestine, and white adipose tissue. PubMed

Diseases

Dysregulation of the PGC-1β gene has been associated with metabolic disorders and cancer.

Phenotypes

PGC-1β has been shown by null deletion in mice to be required for normal growth, puberty, female reproductive function and mammary gland development.
