9.B.147 The 10 TMS Integral Membrane Protein (10-IMP) Family

Little is known about members of the 10-IMP family except that they are of about 300 - 400 aas in length and usually, but not always, have 10 putative TMSs.  Some members with 8 or 12 putative TMSs have been reported.  None appears to have been functionally characterized, and CDD says 'No putative domains have been detected'.  However the 10-IMP family is quite large with many members from diverse bacterial phyla.
