Therapeutic regulation of PPARδ activity using selective agonists has been proposed for various disorders. However, the consequences of altered peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta (PPARδ) activity in the context of intestinal tumourigenesis remain somewhat unclear. Contradictory evidence suggesting PPARδ either attenuates or potentiates intestinal neoplasia. To further investigate the PPARδ dependency of intestinal tumourigenesis, we have analysed the consequences of PPARδ deficiency upon intestinal neoplasia occurring in mice with impaired mismatch DNA repair.
