Summary of "OSBPL2 deficiency upregulate SQLE expression increasing intracellular cholesterol and cholesteryl ester by AMPK/SP1 and SREBF2 signalling pathway."

Previous studies have shown that oxysterol binding protein like 2 (OSBPL2) knockdown is closely related to cholesterol metabolism. However, whether there is a direct relation between OSBPL2 and cholesterol synthesis is unknown. This study explored the mechanism of OSBPL2 deficiency in the upregulation of squalene epoxidase (SQLE) and the subsequent accumulation of intracellular cholesterol and cholesteryl ester. Here, we constructed an OSBPL2-deleted HeLa cell line using CRISPR/Cas9 technology, screened differentially expressed genes and examined the transcriptional regulation of SQLE using a dual-luciferase reporter gene. RNA-seq analysis showed that SQLE was upregulated significantly and the dual luciferase reporter gene assay revealed that two new functional transcription factor binding sites of Sp1 transcription factor (SP1) and sterol regulatory element-binding transcription factor 2 (SREBF2) in the SQLE promoter participated in the SQLE transcription and expression. In addition, we also observed that OSBPL2 deletion inhibited the AMPK signalling pathway and that the inhibition of AMPK signalling promoted SP1 and SREBF2 entry into the nuclear to upregulate SQLE expression. Therefore, these data support that OSBPL2 deficiency upregulates SQLE expression and increases the accumulation of cholesterol and cholesteryl ester by suppressing AMPK signalling, which provides new evidence of the connection between OSBPL2 and cholesterol synthesis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The most abundant protein component of HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS or HDL. This protein serves as an acceptor for CHOLESTEROL released from cells thus promoting efflux of cholesterol to HDL then to the LIVER for excretion from the body (reverse cholesterol transport). It also acts as a cofactor for LECITHIN CHOLESTEROL ACYLTRANSFERASE that forms CHOLESTEROL ESTERS on the HDL particles. Mutations of this gene APOA1 cause HDL deficiency, such as in FAMILIAL ALPHA LIPOPROTEIN DEFICIENCY DISEASE and in some patients with TANGIER DISEASE.

An autosomal recessive disorder of CHOLESTEROL metabolism. It is caused by a deficiency of 7-dehydrocholesterol reductase, the enzyme that converts 7-dehydrocholesterol to cholesterol, leading to an abnormally low plasma cholesterol. This syndrome is characterized by multiple CONGENITAL ABNORMALITIES, growth deficiency, and MENTAL RETARDATION.

An autosomal recessive disorder of lipoprotein metabolism caused by mutation of LECITHIN CHOLESTEROL ACYLTRANSFERASE gene. It is characterized by low HDL-cholesterol levels, and the triad of CORNEAL OPACITIES; HEMOLYTIC ANEMIA; and PROTEINURIA with renal failure.

An autosomal recessively inherited disorder caused by mutation of LECITHIN CHOLESTEROL ACYLTRANSFERASE that facilitates the esterification of lipoprotein cholesterol and subsequent removal from peripheral tissues to the liver. This defect results in low HDL-cholesterol level in blood and accumulation of free cholesterol in tissue leading to a triad of CORNEAL OPACITY, hemolytic anemia (ANEMIA, HEMOLYTIC), and PROTEINURIA.

Abnormalities in the serum levels of LIPIDS, including overproduction or deficiency. Abnormal serum lipid profiles may include high total CHOLESTEROL, high TRIGLYCERIDES, low HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL, and elevated LOW DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL.
