Schematic representation of sequence alignment of cDNAs encoding BnMP-I
and BnMP-IIa. Complete cDNA sequences were aligned using the Blastn program for multiple sequences alignments using as query BnMP-I1 sequence. Percentage similarity of different regions of the catalytic domain relatively to the query is shown. Gray boxes correspond to the spacer segment and the dashed boxes to the 3'UTR. Dots represent the gap corresponding to the RGD-disintegrin domain, represented in black in the P-II sequence. For the complete alignment, see additional file 2.
