Protein Information (annotations from UniProt)

Database IDHIV0003898
UniProt IDQ16611
Primary gene name(s)BAK1
Synonym gene name(s)BAK, BCL2L7, CDN1
Protein nameBcl-2 homologous antagonist/killer
Protein functionIn the presence of an appropriate stimulus, accelerates programmed cell death by binding to, and antagonizing the anti-apoptotic action of BCL2 or its adenovirus homolog E1B 19k protein. Low micromolar levels of zinc ions inhibit the promotion of apoptosis. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:17157251, ECO:0000269|PubMed:8521816}.
Subcellular locationMitochondrion membrane {ECO:0000305};
Single-pass membrane protein {ECO:0000305}.
