Abstract:When the mammalian proto-oncogene bcl-2 is overexpressed it can protect various types of cells both from normal and from experimentally induced apoptosis, but the molecular mechanisms involved are unknown. Although the Bcl-2 protein is membrane-associated, its subcellular location is controversial: two studies have suggested that it is mainly associated with the nuclear envelope and endoplasmic reticulum, whereas another study has suggested that it is mainly located in the inner mitochondrial membrane. The lat…
