Where killers meet--permeabilization of the outer mitochondrial membrane during apoptosis.

Abstract

Although mitochondria are usually considered as supporters of life, they are also involved in cellular death. Mitochondrial outer membrane permeabilization (MOMP) is a crucial event during apoptosis because it causes the release of proapoptotic factors from the mitochondrial intermembrane space to the cytosol. MOMP is mainly controlled by the Bcl-2 family… (More)
