How This Key Event Works

?


ChREBP is an LXR target that independently enhances the up-regulation of select lipogenic genes. The up-regulation of the ChREBP target gene is through liver-type pyruvate kinase (L-PK). Therefore, activation of LXR not only increases ChREBP mRNA via enhanced transcription but also modulates its activity [1]. In the liver, ChREBP mediates activation of several regulatory enzymes of glycolysis and lipogenesis including L-PK, acetyl CoA carboxylase (ACC), and fatty acid synthase (FAS). However, according to the study of Denechaud increase in the glucose flux in the cell is a prerequisite for ChREBP activation from T0901317 in mice [2].
