Through suppressive subtractive hybridization, we identified a new gene whose transcription is induced by sterol regulatory element-binding proteins (SREBPs). The gene encodes acetyl-CoA synthetase (ACS), the cytosolic enzyme that activates acetate so that it can be used for lipid synthesis or for energy generation. ACS genes were isolated previously from yeast, but not from animal cells. Recombinant human ACS was produced by expressing the cloned cDNA transiently in human cells. After purification by nickel chromatography, the 701-amino acid cytosolic enzyme was shown to function as a monomer. The recombinant enzyme produced acetyl-CoA from acetate in a reaction that required ATP. As expected for a gene controlled by SREBPs, ACS mRNA was induced when cultured cells were deprived of sterols and repressed by sterol addition. The pattern of regulation resembled the regulation of enzymes of fatty acid synthesis. ACS mRNA was also elevated in livers of transgenic mice that express dominant-positive versions of all three isoforms of SREBP. We conclude that ACS mRNA, and hence the ability of cells to activate acetate, is regulated by SREBPs in parallel with fatty acid synthesis in animal cells.

We report the cloning, characterization, and chromosomal localization of two novel human members of the bicarbonate transporter superfamily, BTR1 (Bicarbonate Transporter Related protein-1) and AE4 (Anion Exchange protein 4). BTR1 is a novel mammalian protein. The BTR1 gene maps to chromosome 20p12 and encodes a 100 kDa protein predominantly expressed in the kidney, salivary glands, testis, thyroid glands, and trachea. The AE4 gene maps to chromosome 5q23-31 and encodes a 104 kDa protein expressed mainly in the kidney. Human AE4 shares 84% identity with the recently reported rabbit AE4, a sodium independent, Cl(-)/HCO(-)(3) exchanger located on the apical membrane of beta-intercalated kidney cells.
