Apoptosis genes mnemonic

Hello all :)

So we basically have bcl 2 , bcl XL, mcl-1, Bax, bak, bcl -xs genes which influence apoptosis.

Now let's imagine a cell committing suicide which is apoptosis.


1. All the genes which can see this  (Genes which have letter C in them) : bCl-2, bCl xL, mCl 1 will stop apoptosis. These are all anti apoptosis genes.. Bcl xs inspite of seeing, it will not stop the cell commit suicide cos it's extra small ;) :D

2. The remaining genes come under proapoptotic gene category.
