Gene Family: BAR domain containing

Also known as : "Bin-Amphiphysin-Rvs domain containing"

BAR domain: In molecular biology, BAR domains are highly conserved protein dimerisation domains that occur in many proteins involved in membrane dynamics in a cell. The BAR domain is banana shaped and binds to membrane via its concave face. It is capable of sensing membrane curvature by binding preferentially to curved membranes. BAR domains are named after three proteins that they are found: Bin, Amphiphysin and Rvs. [Source: Wikipedia]
