Target

  • FunctionInduces apoptosis. Isoform BimL is more potent than isoform BimEL. Isoform Bim-alpha1, isoform Bim-alpha2 and isoform Bim-alpha3 induce apoptosis, although less potent than the isoforms BimEL, BimL and BimS. Isoform Bim-gamma induces apoptosis.
  • Tissue specificityIsoform BimEL, isoform BimL and isoform BimS are the predominant isoforms and are ubiquitously expressed with a tissue-specific variation. Isoform Bim-gamma is most abundantly expressed in small intestine and colon, and in lower levels in spleen, prostate, testis, heart, liver and kidney.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the Bcl-2 family.
  • DomainThe BH3 motif is required for Bcl-2 binding and cytotoxicity.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion and Endomembrane system. Associated with intracytoplasmic membranes.
