Im not really sure what you're referring to regarding people dissing
By interperipheral membrane proteins, are you referring to integral,
or membrane spanning proteins? Many integral membrane proteins have
alpha helices which form the membrane-spanning domain. The function
of this domain is at least two-fold: (1) to anchor the protein in the
membrane, and (2) to transmit signals from the extracellular ligand
binding domain to the cytoplasmic domain to induce some cellular
response following ligand binding.
The other questions will have to wait for someone else with more
expertise to answer.
