This superfamily is characterised by having long glycine-zipper motifs, characteristically GxxxGxxxG , often with several contiguous copies. The x following the G is frequently found to be an alanine. This sequence region can be found in both symmetric and non-symmetrical membrane structures, and is relatively common. The fact that such a large fraction of the relatively few known membrane channel structures use the glycine zipper suggests that the sequence motif plays a special role in forming these homo-oligomeric bundles .

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request
