24806027 Data suggest that hypoxia-induced expression of BOK in placental cells is regulated via promoter region, hypoxia-response element, and binding of hypoxia-inducible factors (HIF1A, HIF2A/EPAS1, HIF1B/ARNT) but is not affected by its antisense transcript.
24113155 First evidence for a key role of the BOK-MCL1 system in regulating autophagy in the human placenta, whereby an adverse environment as seen in preeclampsia tilts the BOK-MCL1 balance toward the build-up of isoforms that triggers placental autophagy.
23884412 Bok may govern IP3R cleavage and activity during apoptosis.
20673843 The results suggest important roles for Bok and Bcl-X(L) in human ovarian development, follicle maturation and apoptosis.
19942931 Data conclude that Mtd-L functions to regulate trophoblast cell proliferation during early placentation and that the elevated levels of Mtd found in PE may contribute to increased trophoblast proliferation.
19287972 BOKAS is a natural antisense transcript that regulates the pro-apoptotic activity of human Bok
16772296 Bok represents a cell cycle-regulated pro-apoptotic member of the Bcl-2 family
16302269 a link between the apoptotic activity and nuclear localization of a pro-apoptotic Bok
15868100 Studies showed that hBok was distributed in both the cytosol and intracellular membranes of healthy cells.
15775999 A novel Mtd/BOK splice isoform is responsible for trophoblast cell death in pre-eclampsia.
15102863 BOK and NOXA are essential mediators of p53-dependent apoptosis
