Regulation of HAX-1 anti-apoptotic protein by Omi/HtrA2 protease during cell death



Regulation of HAX-1 anti-apoptotic protein by Omi/HtrA2 protease during cell death



Journal of Biological Chemistry 279(48): 50295-50301



Omi/HtrA2 is a nuclear-encoded mitochondrial serine protease that has a pro-apoptotic function in mammalian cells. Upon induction of apoptosis, Omi translocates to the cytoplasm and participates in caspase-dependent apoptosis by binding and degrading inhibitor of apoptosis proteins. Omi can also initiate caspase-independent apoptosis in a process that relies entirely on its ability to function as an active protease.
