High affinity and selective activator of Bax (Ki = 43.3 nM). Binds to the S184 binding pocket to block Bax phosphorylation. Does not bind to other Bcl-2 family members, including Bcl-2, Bak and Bid. Facilitates Bax insertion into the mitochondrial membrane and promotes Bax-dependent cytochrome c release. Induces apoptosis in lung cancer cell lines expressing high levels of Bax selectively over normal cells expressing low levels of Bax. Represses tumor growth of A549 lung cancer xenografts in mice.

Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
Programmed Cell Death Poster
There are two currently recognized forms of programmed cell death: apoptosis and necroptosis. This poster summarizes the signaling pathways involved in apoptosis, necroptosis and cell survival following death receptor activation, and highlights the influence of the molecular switch, cFLIP, on cell fate.
