Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) can activate peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-α (PPARα) and PPARγ. Whether CBDA can activate PPARβ/δ has not been examined sufficiently to date. Since previous studies showed that triple-negative breast cancer cells respond to activation of PPARβ/δ, the present study examined the effect of CBDA in MDA-MB-231 cells and compared the activities of CBDA with known PPARβ/δ agonists/antagonists. Expression of the PPARβ/δ target genes angiopoietin-like 4 (ANGPTL4) and adipocyte differentiation-related protein (ADRP) was increased by CBDA. Interestingly, ligand activation of PPARβ/δ with GW501516 caused an increase in expression of both ANGPTL4 and ADRP, but the magnitude of this effect was markedly increased when co-treated with CBDA. Specificity of these effects were confirmed by showing that CBDA-induced expression of ANGPTL4 and ADRP is mitigated in the presence of either a PPARβ/δ antagonist or an inverse agonist. Results from these studies suggest that CBDA can synergize with PPARβ/δ and might interact with endogenous agonists that modulate PPARβ/δ function.
