Organelle stress-induced activating transcription factor-3 downregulates low-density lipoprotein receptor expression in Sk-Hep1 human liver cells.


The low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) plays a central role in cholesterol homeostasis. Here, we provide evidence that an increase in endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response or a disturbance of mitochondrial function inhibits LDLR expression in human liver Sk-Hep1 cells. Both organelle stresses triggered activation of activating transcription factor… (More)
