Schematic drawings, not to scale, comparing Acropora Sox proteins with those of various bilaterians, across the main Sox families (B-F). The conserved motifs compared are identified in the inset. Numbers of amino acids in the full length proteins are indicated on the right. Species names are abbreviated as follows; Am, coral, Acropora millepora; Ce, nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans; Ci, ascidian, Ciona intestinalis; Dm, fruit-fly, Drosophila melanogaster; Dr, zebrafish, Danio rerio. Fr, Japanese pufferfish, Fugu rubripes; Gg, chicken, Gallus gallus; Hs, human, Homo sapiens; Mm, mouse, Mus musculus; Xl, frog, Xenopus laevis.
