FDFT1 catalyzes the first step in the cholesterol biosynthetic pathway, the conversion of trans-farnesyldiphosphate to squalene. The loss of promoter activity and response to sterols for FDFT1 is localized to a 69-bp section positioned 131 bp 5-prime to the transcription start site. Sequence analysis of this region shows that it contains a sterol regulatory element-1 (SRE1) previously identified in other sterol regulated genes and 2 putative NF1 binding sites.
