null Pathways Assays SREBP-2; SREBP2; bHLHd2; class D basic helix-loop-helix protein 2; sterol regulatory element binding transcription factor 2; sterol regulatory element-binding protein 2; sterol regulatory element-binding transcription factor 2 This gene encodes a ubiquitously expressed transcription factor that controls cholesterol homeostasis by stimulating transcription of sterol-regulated genes. The encoded protein contains a basic helix-loop-helix-leucine zipper (bHLH-Zip) domain. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
