Gene Description PPARGC1A, PPARG coactivator 1 alpha, is a transcriptional cofactor regulating mitochondrial biogenesis and cell metabolism (PMID: 10412986, PMID: 29361779). PPARGC1A is up-regulated in a number of drug-resistant cancers driving tumor dependency on oxidative phosphorylation (PMID: 25490445) but, has also been observed to be down regulated in a variety of cancer types, indicating an unknown role of Ppargc1a in cancer (PMID: 29361779).
