Apoptotic peptidase activating factor 1

Apaf-1, Apoptotic Protease-Activating Factor 1, Axl, Ark
This gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein that initiates apoptosis. This protein contains several copies of the WD-40 domain, a caspase recruitment domain (CARD), and an ATPase domain (NB-ARC). Upon binding cytochrome c and dATP, this protein forms an oligomeric apoptosome. The apoptosome binds and cleaves caspase 9 preproprotein, releasing its mature, activated form. Activated caspase 9 stimulates the subsequent caspase cascade that commits the cell to apoptosis. Alternative splicing results in several transcript variants encoding different isoforms.

Bivona et al., Cleveland, United States. In Nat Genet, 2012
increased activation of AXL and evidence for epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition in multiple in vitro and in vivo EGFR-mutant lung cancer models with acquired resistance to erlotinib in the absence of the EGFR p.Thr790Met alteration or MET activation
Targeted Casp8AP2 methylation increases drug resistance in mesenchymal stem cells and cancer cells.
Leu et al., Taiwan. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 2012
These data demonstrate that methylation within the Casp8AP2 promoter correlates with the development of drug resistance and might serve as a biomarker and treatment target for drug resistance in cancer cells.
Immune modulation of vascular resident cells by Axl orchestrates carotid intima-media thickening.
Korshunov et al., Rochester, United States. In Am J Pathol, 2012
Axl contributes to carotid remodeling not only by inhibition of apoptosis but also via regulation of immune heterogeneity of vascular cells, cytokine/chemokine expression, and extracellular matrix remodeling.

Prieto et al., Bloomington, United States. In Plos One, 2011
Overexpression of Tyro3 in the Rat2 cell line that expresses Axl, but not Mer or Tyro3, resulted in a 5 fold increase in cell proliferation.
