Antigen Background

Cytochrome c is an electron transport protein released from mitochondria as an early committed event in apoptosis. Cytochrome c and dATP are cofactors for the mammalian apoptosome, which is composed of Apaf-1, Bcl-2, and procaspase 9. When caspase 9 is activated, activation of other caspases follow including the death protease caspase 3. The release of cytochrome c is inhibited by the presence of Bcl-2 on these organelles preventing the initiation of apoptosis. In cells induced by several apoptotic agents (such as UV irradiation, staurosporine, and overexpression of Bax), caspase inhibitors do not prevent cytochrome c release.
