The BCL-2 protein family: opposing activities that mediate cell death
BCL-2 family proteins, which have either pro- or anti-apoptotic activities, have been studied intensively for the past decade owing to their importance in the regulation of apoptosis, tumorigenesisExpand

Apoptosis Initiated When BH3 Ligands Engage Multiple Bcl-2 Homologs, Not Bax or Bak
A central issue in the regulation of apoptosis by the Bcl-2 family is whether its BH3-only members initiate apoptosis by directly binding to the essential cell-death mediators Bax and Bak, or whetherExpand

Control of apoptosis by the BCL-2 protein family: implications for physiology and therapy
The BCL-2 protein family determines the commitment of cells to apoptosis, an ancient cell suicide programme that is essential for development, tissue homeostasis and immunity. Too little apoptosisExpand

Proapoptotic Bcl-2 relative Bim required for certain apoptotic responses, leukocyte homeostasis, and to preclude autoimmunity.
Apoptosis can be triggered by members of the Bcl-2 protein family, such as Bim, that share only the BH3 domain with this family. Gene targeting in mice revealed important physiological roles for Bim.Expand

Molecular mechanisms of cell death: recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee on Cell Death 2018
Over the past decade, the Nomenclature Committee on Cell Death (NCCD) has formulated guidelines for the definition and interpretation of cell death from morphological, biochemical, and functionalExpand

ER Stress Triggers Apoptosis by Activating BH3-Only Protein Bim
Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress caused by misfolded proteins or cytotoxic drugs can kill cells and although activation of this pathway has been implicated in the etiology of certain degenerativeExpand

Bim: a novel member of the Bcl‐2 family that promotes apoptosis
Certain members of the Bcl‐2 family inhibit apoptosis while others facilitate this physiological process of cell death. An expression screen for proteins that bind to Bcl‐2 yielded a small novelExpand

The proapoptotic activity of the Bcl-2 family member Bim is regulated by interaction with the dynein motor complex.
Bcl-2 family members that have only a single Bcl-2 homology domain, BH3, are potent inducers of apoptosis, and some appear to play a critical role in developmentally programmed cell death. WeExpand

p53- and Drug-Induced Apoptotic Responses Mediated by BH3-Only Proteins Puma and Noxa
Apoptosis provoked by DNA damage requires the p53 tumor suppressor, but which of the many p53-regulated genes are required has remained unknown. Two genes induced by this transcription factor, noxaExpand

Apoptosis signaling.
Apoptosis, a physiological process for killing cells, is critical for the normal development and function of multicellular organisms. Abnormalities in cell death control can contribute to a varietyExpand
