|SREBP: Gatekeeper of Cholesterol Homeostasis
SREBP1 (sterol-regulatory-element-binding protein 2) is a basic-helix-loop-helix-leucine zipper (bHLH-ZIP) transcription factor. It regulates sterol and cholesterol homeostasis by controlling enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis and u... Read more.
|SREBPs: Global Regulator of Lipid Metabolism
Sterol regulatory element binding proteins (SREBPs) are indirectly required for cholesterol biosynthesis and for uptake and fatty acid biosynthesis. There are three known SREBP isoforms, SREBP1a, 1c and SREBP2; these have different roles i... Read more.
|SREBP2: From Cholesterol Homeostasis to Cancer Invasion
Sterol-regulatory-element-binding protein 2 (SREBP2) is a transcription factor that regulates cholesterol homeostasis by controlling enzymes involved in cholesterol synthesis and uptake, e.g. HMG-CoA. Along with another transcription facto... Read more.
