Schematic drawing representing the most common topologies of single putative transmembrane (pTM) domains or full-length RIFIN and STEVOR proteins using Lep model proteins. Topologies of RA1, RA2, and RB with single pTM domains (A) and full-length (B). Topologies of S06 and S10 single pTM domains (C) and full-length (D). In all cases, the model protein Lep was used; the fragment inserted in position LepH2 is blue and in LepH3 is red. GS is indicated with (Y) and unglycosylated sites indicated with a red (X) superimposed on the GS.
