From: Jacarelhyperol A induced apoptosis in leukaemia cancer cell through inhibition the activity of Bcl-2 proteins

Figure 5

Jac-A inhibited the heterodimerization of antiapoptotic proteins with pro-apoptotic proteins. Jac-A inhibited the binding between Bax with Bcl-xL or Bcl-2 (A) and Bak with Mcl-1 (B). K562 cells were treated with indicated concentrations of Jac-A for 48 h. 150 μg of K562 cell lysates were subjected to co-immunoprecipitation using anti-Bax and anti-Bak antibodies, respectively, further immunoblot with anti- Bcl-xL, Bcl-2, Mcl-1, Bax, or Bak antibody, as described in Materials and methods. The results are one representative of three independent experiments.
