Fig. 4

Multiple sequence alignments of the cytoplasmic domains of representative MACITS. Separate alignments were prepared for collagens XXIII (a), XXV (b), XIII (c), and invertebrate MACITs (d). A consensus sequence (the aa represented in at least 50 % of the sequences) is shown below each set with the conserved cysteines bolded. Shading code is as in Fig. 1b. Species code names are as in Table 1
