Membrane proteins perform a number of crucial functions as transporters, receptors, and components of enzyme complexes. Identification of membrane proteins and prediction of their topology is thus an important part of genome annotation. We present here an overview of transmembrane segments in protein sequences, summarize data from large-scale genome studies, and report results of benchmarking of several popular internet servers.
