The sequences of falcipain-2 (FP2), falcipain-3 (FP3), berghepain-2 (BP2), human cathepsin K (Cath K), human cathepsin L (Cath L), human cathepsin B (Cath B), and papain were aligned using Expassy (European Bioinformatics Institute). Amino acids comprising the ERFNIN and GNFD motifs are labeled with stars, and conserved hydrophobic residues are indicated by arrows. Amino acids that are identical or similar to those of falcipain-2 are highlighted.
