Immunofluorescent analysis of U251 cells using a SREBF2 polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-24167). U251 cells were fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.1%, 10 min), then incubated with a SREBF2 polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-24167) (1:25, 1 hr at 37°C). Primary antibody was detected with fluor-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit secondary antibody (green) at 1:400 dilution for 50 min at 37°C). Actin filaments have been labeled with dye-conjugated phalloidin (red).

SREBPs, including SREBP-1a, SREBP-1c, and SREBP-2, constitute a family of basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors that play a critical role in lipid homeostasis by regulating genes involved in cholesterol and fatty acid metabolism. Each SREBP consists of three domains, including an amino-terminal transcription factor domain of ~480 amino acids, a middle hydrophobic region of ~80 amino acids containing two hydrophobic transmembrane segments, and a carboxy-terminal regulatory domain of ~590 amino acids. SREBP-2 regulates cholesterol synthesis by activating the transcription of genes for HMG-CoA reductase and other enzymes of the cholesterol synthetic pathway. SREBP-2 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.
