Boo, DIVA, BCL2L10, Bcl-B
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the BCL-2 protein family. BCL-2 family members form hetero- or homodimers and act as anti- or pro-apoptotic regulators that are involved in a wide variety of cellular activities. The protein encoded by this gene contains conserved BH4, BH1 and BH2 domains. This protein can interact with other members of BCL-2 protein family including BCL2, BCL2L1/BCL-X(L), and BAX. Overexpression of this gene has been shown to suppress cell apoptosis possibly through the prevention of cytochrome C release from the mitochondria, and thus activating caspase-3 activation. The mouse counterpart of this protein is found to interact with Apaf1 and forms a protein complex with Caspase 9, which suggests the involvement of this protein in APAF1 and CASPASE 9 related apoptotic pathway.

PURPOSE: While bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) is well-established to elicit an inflammatory reaction in the bladder that leads to overactive bladder and fibrosis, little is known about the mechanism by which this is initiated.

METHODS: Bladder tissues were obtained from patients with LUTD including 17 with interstitial cystitis/bladder pain syndrome (IC/BPS), 15 with bladder outlet obstruction (BOO), 12 with spinal cord injury (SCI), 12 with recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI), 13 with ketamine related cystitis (KC) and 10 controls.
In this study we demonstrated that the vaccine candidate against avian influenza virus H5N1 based on the hemagglutinin H5 (HA) fused to the chicken CD154 (HACD) can also be used for differentiating infected from vaccinated animals (DIVA).

These results indicate that vaccination of swine with the attenuated rfaH mutant confers protection against challenge with virulent S. Typhimurium but does not interfere with herd level monitoring for Salmonella spp., thereby allowing for differentiation of infected from vaccinated animals (DIVA).

DIVA (differentiating infected from vaccinated animals) vaccine, originally known as marker vaccine, usually based on the absence of at least one immunogenic protein in the vaccine strain, allows DIVA in conjunction with a diagnostic test that detects antibodies against the antigens lacking in the vaccine strain.

OBJECTIVES: Bladder outlet obstruction (BOO)-related detrusor hypertrophy is associated with upregulation of Rho-kinase (ROCK) activity in an experimental animal model, and has been implicated in BOO-induced bladder dysfunction.

In contrast, the channel-forming Mcl-1 and Bok regulate cytochrome c release and, together with the recently discovered Diva/Boo, control downstream apoptosis-activating factor (Apaf)-1 homologs and caspases.
