Alignments of potential Hhs in L. migratoria, O. furnacalis and Drosophila.

The deduced amino acid sequences of L. migratoria a37032 and O. furnacalis Unigene16362 were compared with Drosophila Hh (Dm_Hh). Completely conserved amino acids are indicated by “*”, and conservative substitutions by “:” and “.” below the sequences. The conserved cysteine residue for an acyl rearrangement analogous to step 1 of the protein splicing pathway is boxed. The conserved motifs in Drosophila Hedgehog are underlined.
