9.B.334. The Archaeal N-terminal Transmembrane Domain Linked to a Sensor Kinase or MCP Domain (N-TM/SK/MCP) Family
These archaeal proteins have an N-terminal transmembrane domain followed by a SK or MCP domain. There seems to exhibit tremendous variation in the combinations of these domains. They are grouped together here as their primary function is probably determined by the hydrophilic domain. The transmembrane domains may serve as membrane anchors.
