Rabbit anti BAD (pSer112) antibody recognizes Bcl2-associated agonist of cell death (BAD), also known as Bcl-xL/Bcl-2-associated death promoter, Bcl-2 binding component 6 or Bcl2-L-8, when phosphorylated at serine 112.

Similar to the other Bcl-2 protein family members, Bax, Bak, Bid and Bock, BAD has a pro-apoptotic function in the apoptosis signaling cascade.

The precise role of BAD in apoptosis signaling depends on BAD’s post-translational modification status. Nonphosphorylated BAD forms heterodimers with the two anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 protein family members, Bcl-xL and Bcl-2 (Zha et al. 1996). The binding of BAD to Bcl-xL promotes apoptosis by inhibiting the apoptosis repressor function of Bcl-xL (Yang et al. 1995). Once serine phosphorylated, BAD is unable to heterodimerize with Bcl-xL and interacts with 14-3-3 proteins instead (Masters et al. 1995). This binding retains BAD in the cytoplasm and thereby enables Bcl-xL to suppress apoptosis (Zha et al. 1996). Phosphorylation of BAD at serine 112 is stimulated by activated MAPK kinases.
