Dimeric interactions among anti- and pro-apoptotic members of the BCL-2 protein family are dynamically regulated and intimately involved in survival and death functions. We report the structure of a BCL-X(L) homodimers a 3D-domain swapped dimer (3DDS). The X-ray crystal structure demonstrates the mutual exchange of carboxy-terminal regions including BH2(More)
