Gene information for BCL2 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID596
Official gene symbolBCL2
Full nameB-cell CLL/lymphoma 2
Gene summaryThis gene encodes an integral outer mitochondrial membrane protein that blocks the apoptotic death of some cells such as lymphocytes. Constitutive expression of BCL2, such as in the case of translocation of BCL2 to Ig heavy chain locus, is thought to be the cause of follicular lymphoma. Two transcript variants, produced by alternate splicing, differ in their C-terminal ends. [provided by RefSeq]
