How This Key Event Works

?



How It Is Measured or Detected

?


The activity of HMG-CoA reductase inhibition may be measured by a commercially available kit which measures a decrease in absorbance at 340 nm, which represents the oxidation of NADPH by the catalytic subunit of HMGR in the presence of the substrate HMG-CoA. Sterol Regulatory element-binding factor 1 (SREBF) is the transcription factor controlling downstream regulation of HMG-CoA reductase. The ToxCast assay ATG_SREBF1_CIS_up is one method of measuring transcriptional control of HMG-CoA reductase.
