Integral monotopic proteins, are permanently attached to the membrane from one side.
Three-dimensional structures of the following integral monotopic proteins have been determined:
- prostaglandin H2 syntheses 1 and 2 (cyclooxygenases)
- lanosterol synthase and squalene-hopene cyclase
- microsomal prostaglandin E synthase
- carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase 2
There are also structures of integral monotopic domains of transmembrane proteins:
- monoamine oxidases A and B
- fatty acid amide hydrolase
- mammalian cytochrome P450 oxidases
- corticosteroid 11-beta-dehydrogenases
