Apoptosis-inducing factor (AIF) is one of the mitochondrial proteins to be released into the cytosol during apoptosis, and it is discovered as the first protein that regulates caspase-independent apoptosis(PMID:20494118). AIF is encoded as a 67 kDa protein that contains a mitochondrial localization signal (MLS) in the N-terminus.It is cleaved from the 62 kDa to the 57 kDa form following ischemic injury and translocated from the mitochondria to the nucleus in a calpain-dependent manner(PMID:19332058).
