Figure 1. The GFP-fusion proteins. (A) Amino acid sequences of the cytoplasmic tails of X. laevis rhodopsin (rho), the porcine AAR, and the NH2 terminus peptide from human c-src (myr). Numbers refer to the amino acid sequence of X. laevis rhodopsin. The sites of palmitoylation (*), the site of myristoylation (^), and proline353 (@) are indicated. Arrows mark the sites of truncation. The solid line indicates the rho6 sequence. The dashed line indicates the rho8 sequence. (B) Diagrams of the fusion proteins and their cellular localization. Solid bars represent GFP. Open bars represent rhodopsin peptides. Vertically striped bars represent the c-src peptide. Diagonally striped bars represent adrenergic peptides. Straight vertical lines represent myristoyl groups and zigzag lines represent palmitoyl groups. +, membrane association; −, its absence. Inner segment (IS) and/or outer segment (OS) localization of the fusion protein is indicated.
