BNIP3 is a hypoxia-inducible BH3-only member of the Bcl-2 family of proteins that regulate apoptosis and autophagy. However the role of BNIP3 in the hypoxia response has proved difficult to define and remains controversial. In this study we show that in cancer cells, knockdown or forced expression of BNIP3 fails to modulate cell survival under hypoxic or normoxic conditions. However, we demonstrate that BNIP3 is regulated post-translationally, existing as multiple monomeric and dimeric phosph...Expand abstract

Synchronised phosphorylation of BNIP3, Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL in response to microtubule-active drugs is JNK-independent and requires a mitotic kinase.
