Gene: BOK (BCL2 family apoptosis regulator BOK) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BOK
Name: BCL2 family apoptosis regulator BOK
Description: Predicted to have protein heterodimerization activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including apoptotic signaling pathway; regulation of apoptotic process; and regulation of chorionic trophoblast cell proliferation. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Golgi apparatus; endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and mitochondrial inner membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: bcl-2-like protein 9; bcl-2-related ovarian killer protein; BCL2 related ovarian killer; bcl2-L-9; BCL2-related ovarian killer; BCL2L9; BOK, BCL2 family apoptosis regulator; BOKL; hBOK; MGC4631
