I am studying a protein that has two transmembrane domains. The spacing of the transmembrane domains is show as boxes on figure below. The C-terminal domain of the protein is cytoplasmic. Is the N-terminal domain of the protein cytoplasmic or extracellular? Why? Which portion of the protein will be most likely to be glycosilated.
NB: I attached a figure show transmembrane domains.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 10, 2019, 12:42 am ad1c9bdddf
Hello and thank you for posting your question to Brainmass.
The N terminus of the protein is cytoplasmic.
Note that we talk about trans-membrane domains, which means each domain spans the entire membrane (unlike for example the p-loop in ion channels that ...
