Synthesis of PB1-F2
Species Homo sapiens
For most influenza A strains (such as PR8), the PB1 mRNA segment produces a second protein, PB1-F2, from the +1 open reading frame (Chen, 2001). PB1-F2 is a pro-apoptotic, mitochondria-localized protein (Chen, 2001; Gibbs, 2003) that oligomerizes (Bruns, 2007) and sensitizes cells to death in concert with the mitochondrial ANT3 and VDAC proteins (Zamarin, 2005).
