BAD a proapoptotic member of the Bcl-2 family. Displaces Bax from binding to Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL, resulting in cell death. Survival factors such as IL-3 can inhibit the apoptotic activity of Bad inducing the phosphorylation of Bad by Akt and p90RSK. 14-3-3 proteins bind phosphorylated Bad, inhibiting its binding to Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL. Phosphorylation by mitochondria-anchored PKA in the BH3 domain can block the dimerization of Bad and Bcl-xL. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
