功能Implicated in synaptic vesicle endocytosis. May recruit other proteins to membranes with high curvature.
组织特异性Brain, mostly in frontal cortex. Expressed at high level in fetal cerebellum.
序列相似性Belongs to the endophilin family. Contains 1 BAR domain. Contains 1 SH3 domain.
结构域An N-terminal amphipathic helix, the BAR domain and a second amphipathic helix inserted into helix 1 of the BAR domain (N-BAR domain) induce membrane curvature and bind curved membranes. The BAR domain dimer forms a rigid crescent shaped bundle of helices with the pair of second amphipathic helices protruding towards the membrane-binding surface.
细胞定位Cytoplasm. Membrane. Concentrated in presynaptic nerve terminals in neurons.
