Rabbit anti PPAR alpha antibody detects an epitope within the N-terminal region of human peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor, alpha (PPARA), a member of the nuclear hormone receptor subfamily. Upon activation, PPARA forms heterodimers with retinoid X receptors (RXRs), and functions to regulate transcription of specific gene sequences. In particular, PPARA controls genes involved in the peroxisomal and mitochondrial beta oxidation pathways, fatty acid uptake, and triglyceride catabolism in the liver and skeletal muscle.

PPARA also has anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative effects and prevents the proatherogenic effects of cholesterol accumulation in macrophages by stimulating cholesterol efflux.

PPARA is the main target of fibrate drugs; hypolipidemic agents used in the treatment of dyslipidemia and the prevention of cardiovascular disease. They could also be used for the treatment of type II diabetes.
