BCL2 associated X, apoptosis regulator

Gene Summary

Enables BH domain binding activity; chaperone binding activity; and heat shock protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including glial cell apoptotic process; mitochondrion organization; and response to corticosterone. Located in cytosol; mitochondrial outer membrane; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Used to study brain glioma; endometriosis; morphine dependence; and pre-malignant neoplasm. Biomarker of several diseases, including abdominal obesity-metabolic syndrome 1; artery disease (multiple); brain disease (multiple); heart disease (multiple); and neurodegenerative disease (multiple). Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute lymphoblastic leukemia; ataxia telangiectasia; colon adenocarcinoma; colorectal cancer; and lung non-small cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human BAX (BCL2 associated X, apoptosis regulator). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
