|Synonyms||BNIP3A, BNIP3H, NIX|
|Function||Induces apoptosis. Interacts with viral and cellular anti-apoptosis proteins. Can overcome the suppressors BCL-2 and BCL-XL, although high levels of BCL-XL expression will inhibit apoptosis. Inhibits apoptosis induced by BNIP3. Involved in mitochondrial quality control via its interaction with SPATA18/MIEAP: in response to mitochondrial damage, participates in mitochondrial protein catabolic process (also named MALM) leading to the degradation of damaged proteins inside mitochondria. The physical interaction of SPATA18/MIEAP, BNIP3 and BNIP3L/NIX at the mitochondrial outer membrane regulates the opening of a pore in the mitochondrial double membrane in order to mediate the translocation of lysosomal proteins from the cytoplasm to the mitochondrial matrix. May function as a tumor suppressor.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus envelope. Endoplasmic reticulum. Mitochondrion outer membrane. Membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Note=Colocalizes with SPATA18 at the mitochondrion outer membrane|

Bnip3L Antibody: Members in the Bcl-2 family are critical regulators of apoptosis by either inhibiting or promoting cell death. Bcl-2 homology 3 (BH3) domain is a potent death domain. BH3 domain containing pro-apoptotic proteins, including Bad, Bax, Bid, Bik, Hrk, Nip3, and Bim, form a growing subclass of the Bcl-2 family. A novel BH3 domain containing protein was recently identified and designated Bnip3L, Bnip3alpha, and Nix (for Nip3-like protein X). Bnip3L/Bnip3alpha/Nix is a homolog of the E1B 19K/Bcl-2 binding and pro-apoptotic protein Bnip3. Overexpression of Bnip3L induces apoptosis. Bnip3L interacts with and overcomes suppresses by Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL. Bnip3L is localized in mitochondria. The messenger RNA of Bnip3L is ubiquitously expressed in human tissues. Bnip3L and Bnip3 form a new subfamily of the pro-apoptotic mitochondrial proteins.
