Supplemental figures

Fig S1: Example of equilibruim ultracentifugation

BAR domains are in a monomer dimer equilibrium in solution

Fig S2: Folding of an amphipathic helix
Folding of N-terminal amphipathic helix as assessed by CD-spectroscopy
Fig S5: Structural overlay of amphiphysin and arfaptin BAR domains

Arfaptin and amphiphysin have BAR domains that show a very similar membrane curvature preference
