Endoplasmic Reticulum

ID #1261

Is a stop transfer sequence a stretch of hydrophobic amino acids similar to an amino-terminal signal sequence?

Yes, it is. Consider that it will become a membrane-spanning region, which means that it will be exposed to the hydrophobic interior of the lipid bilayer, and it makes sense that those amino acids would have hydrophobic side chains.
