Latest Sterol regulatory element binding protein Stories
The regulating protein Srebp2 drives cholesterol formation, which prions need for their propagation, in prion-infected neuronal cells.
A team of scientists at the University of California, Riverside has found that even second-hand tobacco smoke exposure can result in nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a common disease and rising cause of chronic liver injury in which fat accumulates in the liver of people who drink little or no alcohol.
A small molecule earlier found to have both anti-fat and anti-cancer properties is a literal turnoff for fat-making genes, according to a new report.
72 years ago, the first evidence for end-product feedback regulation of a biosynthetic pathway was demonstrated when Rudolph Shoenheimer observed that mice synthesized large amounts of cholesterol when fed a low-cholesterol diet, but this synthesis stopped when the mice were fed cholesterol.
New mechanism for controlling cholesterol and lipid metabolism discovered.
