Mcl1, Induced myeloid leukemia cell differentiation protein Mcl-1 homolog
Also Known as
Involved in the regulation of apoptosis versus cell survival, and in the maintenance of viability but not of proliferation. Mediates its effects by interactions with a number of other regulators of apoptosis. Isoform 2 has antiapoptotic activity. Interacts with HIF3A isoform 2 (via C-terminus domain) (PubMed:21546903). Interacts with BAD, BOK, BIK, BAX, BAK1, and TPT1. Interacts with BBC3, BMF and PMAIP1 (PubMed:15550399, PubMed:18589438). Interacts with BOP. Interacts with BCL2L11; this interaction may sequester BCL2L11 and prevent its pro-apoptotic activity (PubMed:16543145, PubMed:27013495, PubMed:15550399). Interacts with GIMAP5 and HSPA8/HSC70; the interaction between HSPA8 and MCL1 is impaired in the absence of GIMAP5 (PubMed:21502331).
