|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 uptake, e.g.... 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 in lipid synt... 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 factor LXR, SREBP... Read more.
|ABCA1 Expression is Down-Regulated by SREBP microRNA
The ABCA1 (ATP-binding cassette transporter-A1) gene encodes a transmembrane protein, which plays a major role in phospholipid homeostasis by regulating cholesterol efflux from the cell. ABCA1 antibody studies have shown ABCA1 expression is up/down re... Read more.
