Gene RIF (17)

23580416 our findings suggest that induction of the BH3-only protein Hrk is a critical step in 2-ME activation of the JNK-induced apoptotic pathway, targeting mitochondria by liberating proapoptotic protein Bak.
23192964 Diva binds peptides derived from the BH3 domain of several other proapoptotic Bcl-2 proteins, including mouse Harakiri, Bid, Bak and Bmf.
23090478 The BH3-only protein harakiri (HRK) is transactivated by ATF4 in severe hypoxia through direct binding of ATF4 to the promoter region.
22964433 SUZ12 promotes the proliferation of human EOC cells by inhibiting apoptosis and HRK is a novel SUZ12 target gene whose upregulation contributes to apoptosis induced by SUZ12 knockdown.
22773666 Data suggest that DP5 and PUMA/BBC3 (p53 up-regulated modulator of apoptosis/bcl-2-binding component 3) contribute to palmitate-induced apoptosis of pancreatic beta-cells via lipotoxic endoplasmic reticulum stress.
21731739 These results are used to propose a tentative structural model of how Harakiri works.

19641496 Aberrant 5'-CpG methylation status and loss of heterozygosity on 12q13.1 are associated with HRK expression in human malignancies, including prostate cancers, astrocytic tumors and primary central nervous system lymphomas. Review.
