PGC-1alpha plays essential and diverse functions in the control of metabolism ranging from mitochondrial biogenesis and respiration to hepatic gluconeogenesis and muscle fiber-type switching. In a paper in this issue of Cell, the characterization of PGC-1alpha(-/-) mice illustrates these pleiotropic functions and reveals an unexpected role for PGC-1alpha in the brain.
