Isolated by screening for Bcl-2 interacting proteins, Bad shows significant homology to Bcl-2 within the Bcl-2 homology domains 1 and 2 (BH1 and BH2). In addition, several other proteins involved in cell death such as Bax, Bcl-X[L], Mcl-1, and A1 share similar homology with Bcl-2. Bcl-2 is known to oppose several apoptotic signals and is considered to be a central downstream cell death repressor. Bcl-X[L] represses apoptosis, but its short form, Bcl-X[S], promotes cell death. Bax is known to homodimerize as well as heterodimerize with Bcl-2. An excess concentration of Bax opposes the ability of Bcl-2 to repress cell death. Bad can selectively dimerize with Bcl-X[L] and Bcl-2, but not with Bax, Bcl-X[S], Mcl-1, A1, or itself. In mammalian cells, Bad binds more strongly to Bcl-X[L] than Bcl-2. This may explain why Bad reverses the death repressor activity of Bcl-X[L], but not that of Bcl-2. The formation of the Bad-Bcl-X[L] heterodimer displaces Bax andrestores favorable conditions for apoptosis.
