F-BAR proteins join the BAR family fold

Structure. 2007 Jul;15(7):751-3. doi: 10.1016/j.str.2007.06.006.


Expanding the range of curvature generating and curvature stabilizing protein modules, the first F-BAR domain structures support their assignment to the BAR domain superfamily and emphasize how modifications to a basic structural frame can generate a broad spectrum of properties.
