Bax protein plays a key role in mitochondrial membrane permeabilization and cytochrome c release upon apoptosis. Our recent data have indicated that the 20-residue C-terminal peptide of Bax (BaxC-KK; VTIFVAGVLTASLTIWKKMG), when expressed intracellularly, translocates to the mitochondria and exerts lethal effect on cancer cells. Moreover, the BaxC-KK(More)
Bax is a cytosolic protein that responds to various apoptotic signals by binding to the outer mitochondrial membrane, resulting in membrane permeabilization, release of cytochrome c, and caspase-mediated cell death. Currently discussed mechanisms of membrane perforation include formation of hetero-oligomeric complexes of Bax with other pro-apoptotic(More)
