1 Our results suggest that both a PPARgamma agonist (ciglitazone) and a PPARalpha agonist (WY 14.643) are able to protect neurons by modulating mitochondrial fusion and fission, leading to a better response of neurons to oxidative stress, suggesting that a PPAR based therapy could acts simultaneously in different cellular components. ciglitazone peroxisome proliferator activated receptor gamma Mus musculus
