    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 95:5987-92. 1998
    ..We conclude that SREBPs are regulated by food consumption in the mouse liver and that the decline in nuclear SREBP-1c upon fasting may explain in part the decrease in mRNAs encoding enzymes of the fatty acid biosynthetic pathway...

    Curr Opin Lipidol 10:143-50. 1999
    ..In addition, SREBPs are emerging as important regulators of fatty acid synthesis. The current review focuses on the in-vivo regulation of SREBPs in liver and the coordinate regulation of SREBP-activated target genes...
