2 7. (3) A protein consists of the following topogenic features: a signal peptide, stop-transfer sequence, signal-anchor sequence and a stop-anchor sequence arranged sequentially, N to C, and separated by various hydrophilic amino acids. Draw how this protein would orient in the membrane making sure to define the cytosolic and luminal sides of the membrane and where
