However, it was previously unknown whether p53 can also activate oxidative stress-induced necrosis, a regulated form of cell death that depends on the mitochondrial permeability transition pore (PTP) pore.

The PB1-F2 protein localizes to the mitochondria of the infected cells (35) where it interacts with 2 components of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore complex, ANT3 and VDCA1, that are thought to play a major role in apoptosis control (36).
Thus, the mitochondrial permeability transition is involved in apoptotic cell death, in that it releases pro-apoptotic proteins from the mitochondria into the cytosol where, with the aid of cellular ATP, they complete the apoptotic cascade.
This gene-regulated cell death pathway involves opening of the mitochondrial permeability transition pore without caspase activation and cytochrome c release.
