Abstract: Iron stores and lipids are related to the development of cardiovascular disease. Given that peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPAR-α) regulates important physiological processes that impact lipid and glucose homeostasis, we decided to investigate the effects of iron overload on serum lipids and the liver expression of PPAR-α, 3-hydroxy- 3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase, and cholesterol 7α-hydroxylase. Hamsters were divided into four groups. The standard group (S) was fed the AIN-93M diet, the SI group was fed the diet and iron injections, the hypercholesterolemic group (H) was fed a standard diet containing cholesterol, and the HI group was fed a high-cholesterol diet and iron injections. Serum cholesterol in the HI group was higher than in the H group. Gene expression analysis of PPAR-α showed that the HI group had a lower PPAR-α expression than H. These data show that iron, when associated with a high-fat diet, can cause increased serum cholesterol levels, possibly due to a reduction in PPAR- α expression.
