SREBP1A,1C,2:SCAP:cholesterol:INSIG [endoplasmic reticulum membrane]

Stable Identifier
Cricetulus griseus

SCAP forms a homotetramer. The C-terminal domain of SCAP binds the C-terminal domain of SREBP1A/1C/2 (SREBF1A/1C/2). Each SCAP subunit can bind cholesterol. Models show 1 SCAP : 1 SREBP : 1 INSIG.
