The FDPS gene is transcribed to yield mRNA and the mRNA is translated to yield protein.
SREBF1A/1C/2 (SREBP1A/1C/2) and NF-Y bind the promoter of the Farnesyl Diphosphate Synthase (FDPS) gene and activate transcription (Ericsson et al. 1996, Jackson et al. 1996, Horton et al. 1998, Pai et al. 1998, Sakakura 2001, Amemiya-Kudo et al. 2002, Reed et al. 2008, Ishimoto et al. 2010, reviewed in Horton et al. 2002).
