  45. 45. Function:  Essentially contain two types of Enzymes :  Oxidases : which are active in oxidation of lipid  Catalase : which act on Hydrogen Peroxide to liberate Oxygen.
  46. 46.  Several years ago, a number of synthetic compounds were found to cause proliferation of peroxisomes by acting on receptors in the nuclei of cells. These receptors Peroxisome Proliferation Activated Receptors (PPARs)
  47. 47. Peroxisome Proliferation Activated Receptors (PPARs)• Three PPAR receptors α ,β and γ have been characterized.• When activated, they bind to DNA, producing changes in the production of mRNAs.• Mutations of the peroxisome proliferators activator receptor γ (PPARγ) cause insulin resistance

  55. 55. RECENT ADVANCES Organellar dysfunction in the pathogenesis of pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis is an inflammatory disease of exocrine pancreas that carries considerable morbidity and mortality; its pathophysiology remains poorly understood. Recent findings obtained on experimental models, which reveal disordering of key cellular organelles, namely, mitochondria, autophagosomes, and lysosomes, in pancreatitis. Ref
  56. 56. RECENT ADVANCES (PPAR) represented by 3 types: PPAR alpha, PPAR beta, PPAR gamma. PPAR alpha is a key regulator of fatty acid beta- oxidation, participates in development of inflammatory reaction and atherosclerosis formation. PPAR gamma plays important role in lipid metabolism, processes of cell differentiation and growth, participates in glucose utilization and mechanisms of insulin resistance. Specific activators of PPAR gamma are glytazones Ref :http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14671562
  57. 57. RECENT ADVANCES The nuclear (PPAR gamma) in DM,HTN,atherosclerosis is a transcription factor that is activated by polyunsaturated fatty acids and their metabolites and is essential for fat cell formation. PPAR gamma activators such as the glitazone drugs lower glucose and lipid levels in patients with type 2 diabetes and also have antiatherosclerotic and antihypertensive effects. Ref :http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11395411.
