Entrez Gene Summary for BCL2L2-PABPN1 Gene

  • This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring BCL2L2 (BCL2-like 2) and PABPN1 (poly(A) binding protein, nuclear 1) genes on chromosome 14. The read-through transcript encodes a fusion protein that shares sequence identity with each individual gene product. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]

Graphical View of Domain Structure for InterPro Entry



  • The BH4 motif seems to be involved in the anti-apoptotic function.
  • Belongs to the Bcl-2 family.
  • The BH4 motif seems to be involved in the anti-apoptotic function.
  • The BH1 and BH2 motifs form a hydrophobic groove which acts as a docking site for the BH3 domain of some pro-apoptotic proteins. The C-terminal residues of BCL2L2 fold into the BH3-binding cleft and modulate pro-survival activity by regulating ligand access. When BH3 domain-containing proteins bind, they displace the C-terminus, allowing its insertion into the membrane and neutralizing the pro-survival activity of BCL2L2.
  • Belongs to the Bcl-2 family.
