Gene: BAD (BCL2 associated agonist of cell death) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BAD
Name: BCL2 associated agonist of cell death
CRRD ID: 735541
Description: Exhibits cysteine-type endopeptidase activator activity involved in apoptotic process; phospholipid binding activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including apoptotic signaling pathway; cellular response to mechanical stimulus; and positive regulation of cysteine-type endopeptidase activity. Localizes to cytosol and mitochondrial outer membrane. Implicated in endometrial cancer; lung non-small cell carcinoma; and pancreatic cancer. Biomarker of several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease; bone disease (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); macular degeneration; and prostate disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
