General description

Gemfibrozil is a fibric acid derivative and a hypolipidemic drug. Gemfibrozil serves as a ligand for PPARα (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α).

Application

Gemfibrozil has been used to to study its effects on cell cycle progression in yeast. It has been used to study the effects of fibrates on cell proliferation and gene expression in human cell lines.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Gemfibrozil selectively increases Apolipoprotein A-I levels. In yeast cells, application of gemfibrozil delays the start of DNA replication. It is used as a therapeutic agent for dyslipidemia.

Since cholesterol is a water-insoluble molecule it must be packaged for transport within the plasma. The particles that package cholesterol, cholesteryl esters, and triglycerides for transport, are called lipoproteins.
