  • 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
    Cleaved 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.
  • Cellular localizationMembrane. Cytoplasm. Mitochondrion. Nucleus > nucleoplasm. Cytoplasmic, associated with mitochondria.

  • ICC/IF image of ab53709 stained Hek293 cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab53709, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
