|SMART accession number:||SM01026|
|Description:||The BEACH domain was described in the BEIGE protein (D1035670) and in the highly homologous CHS protein. The BEACH domain is usually followed by a series of WD repeats. The function of the BEACH domain is unknown.|
|Interpro abstract (IPR000409):|
The BEACH domain is found in eukaryotic proteins that have diverse cellular functions, from apoptosis to vesicular transport, membrane dynamics and receptor signalling. The name BEACH is derived from BEige And Chediak-Higashi Syndrome, which are the protein in which the domain was originally identified.
The BEACH domain is usually followed by a series of WD repeats. The function of the BEACH domain is unknown.
