Description of YLR332W: O-glycosylated plasma membrane protein that acts as a sensor for cell wall integrity signaling and activates the pathway; interacts with Rom2p, a guanine nucleotide exchange factor for Rho1p, and with cell integrity pathway protein Zeo1p

Transmembrane Domain GxxxG
The transmembrane domain of Mid2p shows homology with the SKG6/AXL2 alpha-helix transmembrane domain (IPR014805). In particular, this domain begins with iviGcvvG. The presence of GxxxG motifs  strongly indicates that Mid2p dimerisation.
