CYP51A1 encodes lanosterol 14 alpha-demethylase, an enzyme involved in steroid biosynthesis (Stroemstedt et al, 1996; Strushkevich et al, 2010). CYP51A1 is upregulated during Schwann cell myelination in an EGR2- and SREBF2-dependent manner, and sites for these factors have been identified in the upstream promoter region (Nagarajan et al, 2001; Halder et al, 2002; LeBlanc et al, 2005; Jang et al, 2010).
