Smac/Diablo is a proapoptotic protein that increases caspase activation in the cytochrome c/Apaf-1/caspase-9 pathway by its binding to the inhibitor of apoptosis proteins (IAPs) and removing their inhibitory activity. Smac/Diablo is a mitochondrial protein which enters the cytosol when cells go throµgh apoptosis, and it moderates the caspase inhibition of IAPs.Smac/DIABLO expression is associated with the result of renal cell carcinoma.Dimeric form of Smac/DIABLO implies that once expressed in the cell the protein has a little probability of dissociation and, thus, loss of function. Survivin, Smac/DIABLO, & PKC-? play an important part in the inhibition of apoptosis by FGF-2 in human small cell lung cancer cells. Mitochondrial survivin associates with Smac/DIABLO, delaying its release. Decreased expression of Smac protein takes part in ovarian carcinogenesis and chemotherapeutic resistance. Smac/DIABLO plays a role in tumor cells during the pathway of apoptosis induction. SMAC protein is regulated by XIAP and degraded by proteasome. SMAC protein takes part inleukemic cell apoptosis. Smac is released during stress-induced apoptosis in multiple myeloma cells.
