Figure 3

Kyte-Doolittle plots of three M COX2 amino acid sequences. ConPred II-generated Kyte-Doolittle plots of three representative MCOX2 amino acid sequences (one each representing species with three, four and five TMHs respectively) showing the hydrophobic nature of the TMH region of MCOX2e. The vertical dashed line demarcates the boundary between MCOX2 homologous and extension regions.
