Membrane protein in DE phage

| posted 29 May, 2018 20:40
We are annotating Rofo. In a couple of related phages (Vivi2 and Lennon), homologs of genes 4 and 6 have been called membrane proteins. However, gp 4 has no predicted TMH, so mistake? gp 6 does have 1 TMH but its location - between terminase and portal - makes me think this function call is suspect. Any insights?

sounds like 4 might be an error– but there isn't any rule about where membrane proteins are in the genome. so 6 can stand.
