BECN1 Background

Beclin-1 is a protein in humans that is encoded by the BECN1 gene. The BECN1 protein is a mammalian ortholog of the yeast autophagy-related gene 6 (Atg6) and BEC-1 in the C. elegans nematode. This protein interacts with either BCL-2 or PI3k class III, playing a critical role in the regulation of both autophagy and cell death. BECN1 also plays a central role in autophagy. In addition to its role in autophagy, BECN1 is an important player in tumorigenesis, and neurodegeneration, being implicated in the autophagic programmed cell death. Ovarian cancer with upregulated autophagy has a less aggressive behavior and is more responsive to chemotherapy. Schizophrenia is associated with low levels of BECN1 in the hippocampus of the affected which causes diminished autophagy which in turn results in increased neuronal cell death.
