The role of Bax in the apoptosis of Leishmania-infected macrophages

Abstract

Background

Leishmania is a protozoan parasite that nests in macrophages and is responsible for the Leishmaniasis disease. In spite of different defense pathways, last strategy of macrophage for killing parasite is apoptosis process. By permeableizing the mitochondrial outer membrane (MOM). As breaching MOM releases apoptogenic factors like cytochrome-c which activate caspases that result in the destruction of the cell. In this review, we summarized the appropriate manuscripts regarding the bax includes, its different types and the effect of bax on the apoptosis of Leishmania and parasite-infected macrophages
