SURF4 family signature


The surfeit locus 4 gene (SURF4 or surf-4) encodes for a conserved integral eukaryotic membrane protein of about 270 to 300 amino-acid residues that seems to be located in the endoplasmic reticulum [1].

As a signature pattern, we selected a conserved region located in the C-terminal section and that seems to overlap with the beginning of the last transmembrane domain of these proteins.
