It has recently been shown that adenoviral-mediated expression of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma co-activator-1 alpha (PGC-1 alpha) in hepatocytes stimulates glucose-6-phosphatase catalytic subunit (G6Pase) gene expression. A combination of fusion gene, gel retardation and chromatin immunoprecipitation assays revealed that, in H4IIE cells, PGC-1 alpha mediates this stimulation through an evolutionarily conserved region of the G6Pase promoter that binds hepatocyte nuclear factor-4 alpha.
