Gene: BAX (BCL2 associated X, apoptosis regulator) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: BAX
Name: BCL2 associated X, apoptosis regulator
Description: Exhibits several functions, including BH3 domain binding activity; channel activity; and protein dimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including apoptotic signaling pathway; mitochondrion organization; and positive regulation of apoptotic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including BAK complex; BAX complex; and mitochondrial envelope. Colocalizes with cell periphery. Implicated in acute lymphoblastic leukemia; ataxia telangiectasia; colon adenocarcinoma; and colorectal cancer. Biomarker of several diseases, including cervical squamous cell carcinoma; osteoarthritis; prostate cancer (multiple); teratoma; and urinary system cancer (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
