ybhM is adjacent to and homologous to ybhL(aceP), which has been implicated in acetate transport; YbhLM may function together as an acetate transporter. The BAX Inhibitor-1 (BI-1) family (previously called the TEGT or UPF0005 family) proteins are widely conserved; BI-1 has an anti-apoptotic function and forms a Ca(2+)-permeable channel; E. coli has three BI-1 family proteins: YccA, YbhM and YbhL (Hückelhoven, 2004; Bultynck, 2011).
