Caenorhabditis elegans

CED-9

CELE_T07C4.8, T07C4.8
ced-9 encodes the sole C. elegans homolog of the mammalian cell-death inhibitor Bcl-2; during development, ced-9 activity is essential for preventing cells from undergoing programmed cell death; ced-9 also appears to have proapoptotic activity; CED-9 functions by binding and repressing the activity of CED-4, a protein similar to human APAF-1 and positive regulator of CED-3 caspase activity; CED-9 localizes to the mitochondrial outer membrane, although this localization is not essential for CED-9 to regulate apoptosis.
