BAX is a pro-apoptotic member of the BCL2 family [23], its oligomerization and channel formation caused mitochondrial membrane permeabilization via inducing cytochrome c release [27,28].
Green fluorescence reflects the monomeric form of JC-1 appearing in the cytoplasm after mitochondrial membrane depolarization.
Another fusion reduction pathway is provided through ubiquitination, membrane extraction, and degradation of outer mitochondrial membrane fusion proteins Mfn1 and Mfn2, via proteasomes [80, 81].
Although a variety of cytokines were released from macrophages cultured with different kinds of GBCAs, we acknowledge that the increase in ROS, IL-6, nitrite/nitrate, and PGE2 levels and the decrease in mitochondrial membrane potential induced by GBCAs in the current study are not analyzed in the clinical practice.
Because Bcl-2 inhibits mitochondrial membrane permeabilization through Bax [56-59], we investigated whether Bcl-2 overexpression alleviates the apoptotic effects of IFN[gamma] and TNF[alpha].
The permeability of mitochondrial membrane has been shown to play a role in apoptosis.

In current study we examined the effects of C2 ceramide and ceranib-2 on the potential of mitochondrial membrane of A549 cells.
The results of ROS and mitochondrial membrane potential measurement showed that vast ROS were generated in the astrocytes and causing mitochondrial membrane potential significantly decreased after a prolonged exposure to CO.
