In the present study, we demonstrated that the antiapoptotic function of Bcl-2 in mast cells is significantly dependent on its association with the heat shock protein 90beta (Hsp90beta). Dissociation of these 2 proteins inhibits the antiapoptotic activity of Bcl-2 by initiating the release of cytochrome c from mitochondria into cytosol and increasing the(More)
Apoptosis or programmed cell death plays an important role in a wide variety of physiologic processes and is regulated by proteins of the Bcl-2 family consisting of both antiapoptotic and proapoptotic factors. The direct involvement of the Bcl-2 protein family in the process of mast cell apoptosis has not been clarified. In the present work we have used a(More)
