Myeloid cell leukemia sequence 1 BCL2 related
Myeloid cell leukemia sequence 1 isoform 1
FunctionInvolved in the regulation of apoptosis versus cell survival, and in the maintenance of viability but not of proliferation. Mediates its effects by interactions with a number of other regulators of apoptosis. Isoform 1 inhibits apoptosis. Isoform 2 promotes apoptosis.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the Bcl-2 family.
Post-translational modificationsCleaved by CASP3 during apoptosis. In intact cells cleavage occurs preferentially after Asp-127, yielding a pro-apoptotic 28 kDa C-terminal fragment. Rapidly degraded in the absence of phosphorylation on Thr-163 in the PEST region. Phosphorylated on Thr-163. Treatment with taxol or okadaic acid induces phosphorylation on additional sites.
