Cholesterol homeostasis is regulated, at least in part, bysterol regulatory element (SRE)-binding proteins (e.g., SREBP1; MIM184756) and by liver X receptors (e.g., LXRA; MIM 602423). Uponsterol depletion, LXRs are inactive and SREBPs are cleaved, afterwhich they bind promoter SREs and activate genes involved incholesterol biosynthesis and uptake. Sterol transport is mediatedby vesicles or by soluble protein carriers, such as steroidogenicacute regulatory protein (STAR; MIM 600617). STAR is homologous toa family of proteins containing a 200- to 210-amino acidSTAR-related lipid transfer (START) domain, including STARD6(Soccio et al., 2002 [PubMed 12011452]).
