SEPT4 (known also as ARTS, an apoptosis-related protein in the TGF-beta signaling pathway) is a pro-apoptotic mitochondrial protein (Gottfried Y et al. 2004). SEPT4 is an unique member of the septin family which functions as a tumor suppressor. SEPT4 promotes apoptosis through binding and antagonizing inhibitor of apoptosis (IAP) proteins and specifically X linked IAP (XIAP) (Gottfried Y et al. 2004). NMR and fluorescence spectroscopy showed that the C-terminal domain (CTD) of SEPT4 directly binds BIR3 domain of XIAP. The BIR3 interacting region in SEPT4 CTD was mapped to SEPT4 residues 266 - 274, which are the nine C-terminal residues in the protein (Bornstein B et al. 2011; Reingewertz TH et al. 2011).
