At1g12060: ATBAG5 (ARABIDOPSIS THALIANA BCL-2-ASSOCIATED ATHANOGENE 5)

A member of Arabidopsis BAG (Bcl-2-associated athanogene) proteins, plant homologs of mammalian regulators of apoptosis. Plant BAG proteins are multi-functional and remarkably similar to their animal counterparts, as they regulate apoptotic-like processes ranging from pathogen attack, to abiotic stress, to plant development.
