AbstractAlthough it has been long recognized that the relative balance of pro-and antiapoptotic Bcl-2 proteins is critical in determining the susceptibility to apoptotic death, only a few studies have examined the level of these proteins specifically at mitochondria during postnatal brain development. In this study, we examined the age-dependent regulation of Bcl-2 family proteins using rat brain mitochondria isolated at various postnatal ages and from the adult. The results indicate that a general downregula…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
