Summaries for BIK Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for BIK Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene shares a critical BH3 domain with other death-promoting proteins, such as BID, BAK, BAD and BAX, that is required for its pro-apoptotic activity, and for interaction with anti-apoptotic members of the BCL2 family, and viral survival-promoting proteins. Since the activity of this protein is suppressed in the presence of survival-promoting proteins, it is suggested as a likely target for anti-apoptotic proteins. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for BIK Gene

BIK (BCL2 Interacting Killer) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Wnt Signaling Pathway (WikiPathways) and Apoptosis and survival_Regulation of Apoptosis by Mitochondrial Proteins. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and BH domain binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for BIK Gene

  • Accelerates programmed cell death. Association to the apoptosis repressors Bcl-X(L), BHRF1, Bcl-2 or its adenovirus homolog E1B 19k protein suppresses this death-promoting activity. Does not interact with BAX.
