MCL1 apoptosis regulator, BCL2 family member

ENTREZID: 4170 | Type: NA | Map: 1q21.2

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
This gene encodes an anti-apoptotic protein, which is a member of the Bcl-2 family. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. The longest gene product (isoform 1) enhances cell survival by inhibiting apoptosis while the alternatively spliced shorter gene products (isoform 2 and isoform 3) promote apoptosis and are death-inducing.
