Gain of Bcl-2 is more potent than bax loss in regulating mammary epithelial cell survival in vivo

  • The impact of gain of Bcl-2 function on mammary epithelial cell survival was compared with loss of Bax function during the two stages of mammary gland involution. Bcl-2 gain of function reduced apoptosis 50% during the first stage and increased cell survival 70% during the second stage. Complete loss of Bax reduced apoptosis by 20% during the first stage without second stage effect. Partial loss of Bax was ineffective but increased cell survival 2.4-fold when combined with Bcl-2 gain. Gain of Bcl-2 function is more potent than loss of Bax function in regulating mammary epithelial cell survival in vivo.
