Cholesterol homeostasis: Clipping out a slippery regulator

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


SREBPs are transcriptional activators central to cholesterol homeostasis. Recent work has shown that a two-step cleavage of membrane-bound SREBPs frees them to enter the nucleus. An activator of the first, sterol-regulated proteolysis step has also been identified.
