Beclin 1 (coiled coil moesin like BCL2 interacting protein)
Beclin 1 autophagy related
Coiled coil myosin like BCL2 interacting protein
Coiled-coil myosin-like BCL2-interacting protein
FunctionPlays a central role in autophagy (By similarity). May play a role in antiviral host defense. Protects against infection by a neurovirulent strain of Sindbis virus.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the beclin family.
Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network membrane. Interaction with ATG14 promotes translocation to autophagosomes. Expressed in dendrites and cell bodies of cerebellar Purkinje cells.
