  Domain Name: Bax1-I
Inhibitor of apoptosis-promoting Bax1. Programmed cell-death involves a set of Bcl-2 family proteins, some of which inhibit apoptosis (Bcl-2 and Bcl-XL) and some of which promote it (Bax and Bak). Human Bax inhibitor, BI-1, is an evolutionarily conserved integral membrane protein containing multiple membrane-spanning segments predominantly localised to intracellular membranes. It has 6-7 membrane-spanning domains. The C termini of the mammalian BI-1 proteins are comprised of basic amino acids resembling some nuclear targeting sequences, but otherwise the predicted proteins lack motifs that suggest a function. As plant BI-1 appears to localise predominantly to the ER, we hypothesized that plant BI-1 could also regulate cell death triggered by ER stress. BI-1 appears to exert its effect through an interaction with calmodulin.
