This article is a concise review of up-to-date information and recent discoveries concerning structure, site of action, tissue distribution, biological effects and molecular mechanisms of Bcl-2 family proteins. Particular attention has been focused on the physiological aspect of Bcl-2 protein function with emphasis on animal production and health. Bcl-2-related proteins are the principal regulators of apoptosis, acting through the control of ions (K+, H+, Cl-, Ca2+) and reactive oxygen species… CONTINUE READING
