SREBF2(redirected from Class-D basic helix-loop-helix protein 2)
SREBF2A gene on chromosome 22q13 that encodes a ubiquitously expressed transcription factor with a basic helix-loop-helix-leucine zipper (bHLH-Zip) domain, which controls cholesterol homeostasis by stimulating transcription of sterol-regulated genes. The cognate gene product is required for lipid homeostasis: it regulates transcription of the LDL receptor gene, cholesterol and the fatty acid synthesis pathway.
