The SREBP pathway. SREBP resides in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), where it is bound to SCAP by its regulatory (Reg) domain. When cholesterol levels fall, SCAP and SREBP move to the Golgi complex, where SREBP undergoes successive proteolytic cleavages by a serine protease and a metalloprotease. The released DNA-binding domain moves to the nucleus to alter gene expression.

Describe the roles of glycerol 3-phosphate, phosphatidate, and diacylglycerol in triacylglycerol and phospholipid synthesis.

G3P is the foundation for both TAG and phospholipid synthesis. G3P is acylated twice to form phosphatidate. In TAG synthesis, the phosphoryl group is removed from G3P to form DAG, which is then acylated to form TAG. In phospholipid synthesis, phosphatidate commonly reacts with CTP to form CDP-DAG, which then reacts with an alcohol to form a phospholipid. Alternatively, DAG may react with a CDP-alcohol to form a phospholipid

New cards
86

How is the glycerol 3-phosphate required for phosphatidate synthesis generated?

G3P is formed primarily by the reduction of DHAP and to a lesser extent by the phosphorylation of glycerol.

New cards
