Using the two-hybrid system, coimmunoprecipitation and transfection studies on E2-dependent human breast cancer MCF-7 cells, it is herein reported that receptor for activated C kinase 1 (RACK-1), an intracellular G-protein-like molecule, [sup][5] is able to bind to and activate the human ER-a.
Importantly, ABT-737, a BH3-mimetic inhibitor that specifically targets BCL-2/ BCL-[X.sub.L], but not Mcl-1 [104, 105], disrupted the coimmunoprecipitation of ATG12 with BCL-2, but not with Mcl-1 [54].
