GW0742 is a synthetic, potent and selective PPAR-β/δ agonist. PPARs are ligand-dependent transcription factors which are involved in many physiological processes, such as inflammation and energy homeostasis. PPAR-β/δ is one of three PPARs in the nuclear hormone receptor superfamily that are collectively involved in the control of lipid homoeostasis among other functions. GW0742 can attenuate the increase of PARP activity that caused by SAO shock. GW0742 is also able to prevent radiation-induced brain injury in C57Bl/6 wild-type (WT) and PPARδ knockout (KO) mice. Dietary GW0742 can prevent the acute increase in IL-1β mRNA and ERK phosphorylation measured at 3 h after a single 10-Gy dose of WBI as well as the increase in the number of activated hippocampal microglia 1 week after WBI.
