SREBPs: sterol-regulated transcription factors.
Studies of the feedback regulation of cholesterol synthesis in animals have led to the identification of a unique family of membrane-bound transcription factors, sterol regulatory element bindingExpand
Molecular regulation of SREBP function: the Insig-SCAP connection and isoform-specific modulation of lipid synthesis.
TLDR
New information on the role of insulin-induced genes and the differential role and regulation of SREBP-1c and -2 may ultimately lead to novel strategies for the treatment of dyslipidemia and insulin resistance. Expand
The SREBP pathway — insights from insigs and insects
  • R. B. Rawson

  • Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology
  • 2003
TLDR
Recently discovered components of the regulatory machinery that govern SREBP processing, as well as studies in Drosophila that indicate an ancient role for the SRE BP pathway in integrating membrane composition and lipid biosynthesis are considered. Expand
BiP binding keeps ATF6 at bay.
TLDR
It is shown that transport to the Golgi complex and subsequent proteolytic activation of the stress-regulated transcription factor ATF6 is initiated by the dissociation of the ER chaperone BiP from ATF6, demonstrating that BiP is a key element in sensing the folding capacity within the ER. Expand

TLDR
These discoveries suggest that inhibition of SREBP can be a novel strategy to treat metabolic diseases, such as type II diabetes, insulin resistance, fatty liver, and atherosclerosis. Expand
SREBPs: the crossroads of physiological and pathological lipid homeostasis
TLDR
Recent studies elucidating the transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of SREBP-1c through nutrition and the action of hormones, particularly insulin, and the resulting implications for dyslipidemia of obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes are summarized. Expand
Regulation of SREBP Processing and Membrane Lipid Production by Phospholipids in Drosophila
TLDR
The finding that SRE BP processing is controlled by different lipids in mammals and flies (sterols and phosphatidylethanolamine, respectively) suggests that an essential function of SREBP is to monitor cell membrane composition and to adjust lipid synthesis accordingly. Expand
A pathway approach to investigate the function and regulation of SREBPs
The essential function of sterol regulatory element-binding proteins (SREBPs) in cellular lipid metabolism and homeostasis has been recognized for a long time, and the basic biological pathwayExpand
SREBPs: activators of the complete program of cholesterol and fatty acid synthesis in the liver.
TLDR
The complex, interdigitated roles of these three SREBPs have been dissected through the study of ten different lines of gene-manipulated mice and form the subject of this review. Expand
Site-1 protease, a novel metabolic target for glioblastoma.
TLDR
The use of PF-429242 to inhibit site-1 protease (S1P), an enzyme required for SREBP activation, demonstrates the potential of S1P as a target for glioblastoma therapy. Expand

TLDR
Sterol-regulated proteolysis of a membrane-bound transcription factor provides a novel mechanism by which transcription can be regulated by membrane lipids. Expand
Sterol-Regulated Release of SREBP-2 from Cell Membranes Requires Two Sequential Cleavages, One Within a Transmembrane Segment
TLDR
Using H-Ras-SREBP-2 fusion proteins, it is shown that the NH2-segment is released from membranes by two sequential cleavages and enters the nucleus and activates genes controlling cholesterol synthesis and uptake. Expand

TLDR
A Drosophila homolog to the sterol responsive element binding proteins (SREBPs) is cloned, and it is found the full-length gene product in the membrane fraction and a shorter cross-reacting form in the nuclear fraction. Expand

TLDR
The studies discussed here track the progression in understanding the mechanism for transcriptional regulation by cholesterol from the isolation of the key genes involved, to the careful dissection of the cis-acting sequences that control expression, and on to what is currently known about the trans-acting proteins that mediate the regulatory response.
