26181206 these findings suggest that p53-R273H can specifically drive AKT signaling and suppress BMF expression, resulting in enhanced cell survivability and anoikis resistance.
25321483 On the corresponding BMF gene promoter, loss of HDAC8 was associated with signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3)/specificity protein 3 (Sp3) transcription factor exchange and recruitment of p300.
24901046 Overexpression of ApoL2 did not induce cell death on its own. ApoL2 did not sensitize or protect cells from overexpression of the BH3-only proteins Bmf or Noxa.
23192964 Diva binds peptides derived from the BH3 domain of several other proapoptotic Bcl-2 proteins, including mouse Harakiri, Bid, Bak and Bmf.
21673109 BMF is induced in human IEC by the loss of cell attachment and is likely to play an important role in the regulation of IEC survival
20861305 Data show that hypoxic conditions inhibit anoikis and block expression of proapoptotic BH3-only family members Bim and Bmf in epithelial cells.
20819778 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-gene interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
20706276 characterization of the bmf gene locus; molecular basis of the generation of the 2 major isoforms of Bmf; provide evidence that Bmf can act as a sensor for stress that associates with the repression of the conventional CAP-dependent translation machinery
19671867 MicroRNA-221 targets Bmf in hepatocellular carcinoma and correlates with tumor multifocality.
19641506 Bmf supports Bim in regulating cell death processes in response to many stimuli. Review.
