Figure 1

Partial genomic structure and amino acid sequence of tammar PHLDA2. (A) Exons are depicted as open boxes. The start and end of the ORF and the poly-A signal sequence are represented as ATG, TGA and AATAAA, respectively. The numbers indicate the nucleotide distance from the start of the ORF. (B) The alignment was created using "CLC Sequence Viewer 6" software. Identical and similar amino acids are indicated by the same color at each location. The bold red line represents the region of the PH domain. The amino acid sequences for human, mouse, tammar, platypus and chicken PHLDA2 were derived from the following accession numbers respectively: Genbank:NM_003311, Genbank:NM_009434, DDBJ:AB537423, GenBank:XM_001507454, GenBank:XM_421020.
