  Domain Name: F-BAR_CIP4-like
The F-BAR (FES-CIP4 Homology and Bin/Amphiphysin/Rvs) domain of Cdc42-Interacting Protein 4 and similar proteins. F-BAR domains are dimerization modules that bind and bend membranes and are found in proteins involved in membrane dynamics and actin reorganization. This subfamily is composed of Cdc42-Interacting Protein 4 (CIP4), Formin Binding Protein 17 (FBP17), FormiN Binding Protein 1-Like (FNBP1L), and similar proteins. CIP4 and FNBP1L are Cdc42 effectors that bind Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP) and function in endocytosis. CIP4 and FBP17 bind to the Fas ligand and may be implicated in the inflammatory response. CIP4 may also play a role in phagocytosis. Members of this subfamily typically contain an N-terminal F-BAR domain and a C-terminal SH3 domain. In addition, some members such as FNBP1L contain a central Cdc42-binding HR1 domain. F-BAR domains form banana-shaped dimers with a positively-charged concave surface that binds to negatively-charged lipid membranes. They can induce membrane deformation in the form of long tubules.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
