Additional file 6: of Segmental duplications and evolutionary acquisition of UV damage response in the SPATA31 gene family of primates and humans

Alignment of SPATA31 protein with CRY2 and EBV-BPLF1 proteins. The figure shows the alignment of SPATA31A1 (Q5TZJ5-1) protein with CRY2 (Q49AN0-1) (Top) and ENV-BPLF1 (P03186) (bottom) proteins. Similar (gray) and identical (black) amino acids are highlighted by using boxshade (http://www.ch.embnet.org/software/BOX_form.html). Alignment was performed by using Clustal-w and manually edited and only the region showing highest homology/similarity region is shown (starting from the amino acid position 166 of SPATA31A1) [31]. The overall calculated identity and similartiy between SPATA31A1 and CRY2 protein within the given window of alignment is 15% and 23%, and between SPATA31A1 and EBV-BPLF1 protein is 17% and 28%, respectively. Identity and similarity was calculated by GeneDoc software (version 2.7.000). (PDF 53 kb)
