(biochemistry)
A transcription factor required for the active transcription of genes that encode the low-density lipoprotein receptor and enzymes in cholesterol synthesis.

SREBPs are made and embedded in the membrane of the cellular compartment called the endoplasmic reticulum, or ER.
Aunque se conoce que esta es la principal via de regulacion de enzimas lipogenicas por algunos AGI que han sido estudiados, aun no se conoce con claridad si los AGI que ingresan en la MEC desencadenan directamente la via de la SREBP (Figura 2 # 20) o si lo hacen de forma indirecta a traves del estimulo de hormonas como la leptina y la prolactina (Figura 2 #21) o ambos.
Professor Song discovered that SREBP controls the biosynthesis of cholesterol, fatty acids and triglyceride.
Novel putative SREBP and LXR target genes identified by microarray analysis in liver of cholesterol-fed mice.
In addition, 8 genes (2 of SREBPs and 6 of FABP4) were identified as superior to the remaining 23 genes (10 of SREBPs and 13 of FABP4) based on a test of FAC and economic traits [22].

The response to the reduction of intracellular sterol is mediated by transcription factor SREBP (2).
SIRT1 also regulates lipid metabolism by manipulating PPAR-[alpha], LXR, FXR, and SREBP signals [28, 29].
The researchers focused on two key regulators of lipid (fat) metabolism that are found in many human cells as well: SREBP (sterol regulatory element-binding protein) that stimulates synthesis of fatty acids in the liver, and AMPK (adenosine monophosphate kinase) that turns SREBP on and off.
Moreover, many nsSNPs were found in a set of 26 genes including FAT tumor suppressor homolog 3 (FAT3, 903 SNPs), family with sequence similarity 13, member A (FAM13A, 94 SNPs), ATP-binding cassette, subfamily G (ABCG2, 92 SNPs) and SREBP cleavage activating protein (SCAP, 69 SNPs), in which the relationship of the genes with milk production was not previously reported (Supplementary Table 2).
Fat accumulation in Caenorhabditis elegans is mediated by SREBP homolog SBP-1.
