|Formulation||In PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Precautions||SREBP2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcriptional activator required for lipid homeostasis. Regulates transcription of the LDL receptor gene as well as the cholesterol and to a lesser degree the fatty acid synthesis pathway (By similarity). Binds the sterol regulatory element 1 (SRE-1) (5'-ATCACCCCAC-3') found in the flanking region of the LDRL and HMG-CoA synthase genes.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Golgi apparatus membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cytoplasmic vesicle, COPII-coated vesicle membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Moves from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi in the absence of sterols|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed in adult and fetal tissues|

SREBP2 regulates cholesterol synthesis by activating the transcription of genes for HMG-CoA reductase and other enzymes of the cholesterol synthetic pathway.2 SREBP2 is ubiquitously detected in various tissues. Under basal conditions SREBP is bound to ER membranes as a glycosylated precursor protein. Upon cholesterol depletion, the protein is cleaved to its active forms (about 50-68 kDa) and translocated into the nucleus to stimulate transcription of genes involved in the uptake and synthesis of cholesterol.
