Comments Recent papers, based on sequence and structural similarities have shown that a conserved region in more divergent families, like oligophrenin, centaurin beta, sorting nexin, ICA69, pick1 or arfaptins, is related to the BAR domain. These families are however too divergent to be detected by the profile.
