  Domain Name: BIR
Baculoviral inhibition of apoptosis protein repeat domain; Found in inhibitors of apoptosis proteins (IAPs) and other proteins. In higher eukaryotes, BIR domains inhibit apoptosis by acting as direct inhibitors of the caspase family of protease enzymes. In yeast, BIR domains are involved in regulating cytokinesis. This novel fold is stabilized by zinc tetrahedrally coordinated by one histidine and three cysteine residues and resembles a classical zinc finger.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

Total Mutations Found: 4

This domain occurred 8 times on human genes (22 proteins).


 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
