Induction of Bad-mediated apoptosis by Sindbis virus infection: involvement of pro-survival members of the Bcl-2 family.


It is known that infection with Sindbis virus (SNV) induces apoptosis, which is inhibited by two pro-survival members of the Bcl-2 family, Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL. However, the mechanism of involvement of the other members of the Bcl-2 family in SNV-induced apoptosis remains unclear. In this study we report that Bad protein, one of the pro-apoptotic Bcl-2 family… (More)
