Comparison of the KIFC1 protein in E. modestus with its homologues.
This figure shows the amino acid alignment of KIFC1 with its homologues using Vector NTI10 (Invitrogen, California, USA). The AYGQTGSGKT, SSRSH, and LAGSE sequences (red frame) are the putative ATP-binding motifs. The YNETIRDLL sequence (blue frame) is the microtubule-binding motif. The ELKGNIRVFCRVRP sequence (black frame) is the KIFC conserved consensus. The sequenced KIFC1 shows a 69.9, 47.8, 47.9, 49.2, and 46.9% identity with its counterparts in Eriocheir sinensis, Crassostrea gigas, Xenopus laevis, Mus musculus, and Danio rerio, respectively.
