DESCRIPTION
Also known as BCL2_CANLF, BCL2. Suppresses apoptosis in a variety of cell systems including factor-dependent lymphohematopoietic and neural cells. Regulates cell death by controlling the mitochondrial membrane permeability. Appears to function in a feedback loop system with caspases. Inhibits caspase activity either by preventing the release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria and/or by binding to the apoptosis-activating factor (APAF-1) (By similarity). May attenuate inflammation by impairing NLRP1-inflammasome activation, hence CASP1 activation and IL1B release (By similarity). Forms homodimers, and heterodimers with BAX, BAD, BAK and Bcl-X(L). Heterodimerization with BAX requires intact BH1 and BH2 motifs, and is necessary for anti-apoptotic activity (By similarity). Also interacts with APAF1, BBC3, BCL2L1, BNIPL, EI24, MRPL41 and TP53BP2. Binding to FKBP8 seems to target BCL2 to the mitochondria and probably interferes with the binding of BCL2 to its targets. Interacts with BAG1 in an ATP-dependent manner. Interacts with RAF1 (the 'Ser-338' and 'Ser-339' phosphorylated form). Interacts (via the BH4 domain) with EGLN3; the interaction prevents the formation of the BAX-BCL2 complex and inhibits the anti-apoptotic activity of BCL2 (By similarity). Interacts with G0S2; this interaction also prevents the formation of the anti-apoptotic BAX-BCL2 complex (By similarity). Interacts with BOP (By similarity). Interacts with the SCF(FBXO10) complex (By similarity). Interacts (via the loop between motifs BH4 and BH3) with NLRP1 (via LRR repeats) (By similarity). Interacts with GIMAP3/IAN4, GIMAP4/IAN1 and GIMAP5/IAN5 (By similarity).
