Bax monomers form dimer units in the membrane that further self-assemble into multiple oligomeric species. Nat Commun. 2015 Aug 14;6:8042. doi: 10.1038/ncomms9042.
Upon activation by cBid, the proapoptotic protein Bax binds to the membrane as a monomer before further self-assembling in oligomers based on dimeric units, suggesting a mechanism for Bax pore formation in the outer mitochondrial membrane that mediates cell death.
