Bag5

Official Full Name
BCL2-associated athanogene 5
Background
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the BAG1-related protein family. BAG1 is an anti-apoptotic protein that functions through interactions with a variety of cell apoptosis and growth related proteins including BCL-2, Raf-protein kinase, steroid hormone receptors, growth factor receptors and members of the heat shock protein 70 kDa family. This protein contains a BAG domain near the C-terminus, which could bind and inhibit the chaperone activity of Hsc70/Hsp70. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene.
Synonyms
BAG5; BCL2-associated athanogene 5; BAG family molecular chaperone regulator 5; bcl-2-associated athanogene 5; BAG-family molecular chaperone regulator-5; BAG-5; zgc:114117
