Dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids modulate the transcription of numerous proteins including several hepatic lipogenic enzymes. Several lines of evidence indicate that polyunsaturated fatty acids do not regulate the transcription of hepatic lipogenic genes via a peroxisomal proliferator-activated receptor, but the mechanism may involve transcription factors related to the carbohydrate response region.
