Alignment extended from. Highly alpha-helical. The cytosolic endocytic adaptor proteins in fungi carry this domain at the N-terminus; several of these have been referred to as muniscin proteins. These N-terminal BAR, N-BAR, and EFC/F-BAR domains are found in proteins that regulate membrane trafficking events by inducing membrane tubulation. The domain dimerizes into a curved structure that binds to liposomes and either senses or induces the curvature of the membrane bilayer to cause biophysical changes to the shape of the bilayer; it also thereby recruits other trafficking factors, such as the GTPase dynamin. Most EFC/F-BAR domain-family members localize to actin-rich structures.
