Primary sequence and hydrophobicity of TAs in SLMAP. Both of the alternatively spliced SLMAP tail anchors are predicted to encode a transmembrane helix according to the HMMTOP program. The transmembrane regions are shown in bold and underlined, the positively charged residues are shown in a larger font and bold for both TA1 and TA2 (A). The hydrophobicity of the TA1 (pink square) and TA2 (blue diamond) was calculated using the Eisenberg normalised scale, with a window size of 9, the relative weight for window edges was 100 (B).
