BIRC3 (Baculoviral IAP Repeat-containing Protein 3, Apoptosis Inhibitor 2, API2, C-IAP2, IAP Homolog C, Inhibitor of Apoptosis Protein 1, IAP-1, hIAP-1, hIAP1, RING Finger Protein 49, TNFR2-TRAF-signaling Complex Protein 1, API2, IAP1, MIHC, RNF49)
Description:
Apoptosis can be inhibited by a group of proteins called inhibitors of apoptosis (IAPs). These proteins contain a BIR (baculovirus IAP repeat) domain near the amino-terminus. The BIR domain can bind some caspases. Many members of the IAP family of proteins block proteolytic activation of caspase-3 and -7. For example, XIAP, cIAP-1 and cIAP-2 appear to block cytochrome c-induced activation of caspase-9, thereby preventing initiation of the caspase cascade. Since cIAP-1 and cIAP-2 were first identified as components in the cytosolic death domain-induced complex associated with the TNF family of receptors, they may inhibit apoptosis by additional mechanisms.
