Sterol regulatory element-binding proteins: activators of cholesterol and fatty acid biosynthesis.

Author information

Department of Molecular Genetics, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre, Dallas 75235, USA.


A family of transcription factors designated sterol regulatory element-binding proteins (SREBPs) mediates the previously described end-product feedback regulation of cholesterol biosynthesis. In addition, SREBPs are emerging as important regulators of fatty acid synthesis. The current review focuses on the in-vivo regulation of SREBPs in liver and the coordinate regulation of SREBP-activated target genes.
