We previously showed that BimEL was deeply involved in hepatocyte apoptosis under oxidative stress conditions. The Bim promoter region includes an AP-1 binding site, a FOXO binding site, and three myb binding sites. In this study, we found that a component of AP-1, c-Fos is critical for BimEL upregulation and apoptosis.
