Scientific Background : BID is a BH3 interacting death domain that heterodimerizes with either agonist BAX or antagonist BCL2 (1). BID is a member of the BCL-2 family of cell death regulators and is a mediator of mitochondrial damage induced by caspase-8 (CASP8). BID initiates apoptosis by binding to regulatory sites on prosurvival BCL2 proteins to directly neutralize their function. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants of BID have been found, but the full-length nature of some variants has not been defined. BID together with Cathepsins play an important role in the actions of Camptothecin on breast cancer cells (2).
