CYP51A1 encodes lanosterol 14 alpha-demethylase, a protein involved in steroid biosynthetic pathways (Stromstedt et al, 1996; Strushkevich et al, 2010). Consistent with its expression during Schwann cell myelination, expression is synergistically activated by EGR2 and SREBF2 acting through cognate sites in the promoter (Nagarajan et al, 2001; Halder et al, 2002; LeBlanc et al, 2005; Jang et al, 2010).
