Figure 5

Phylogetic representation of amino acid sequence alignments of independent domains. Trees were obtained as described in Methods section at Numbers close to the nodes represent the support value for each branch. Prior to phylogenetic analyses, cDNA sequences were translated and datasets were partitioned into a group with sequences of catalytic domains (amino acid residues at positions 1-214 of BnMP-III) or disintegrin/disintegrin-like domains (amino acid residues at positions 215-307 of BnMP-III). (*) indicates sequences of SVMPs class P-II; (#) indicates non-hemorrhagic class P-III SVMPs. The description, accession numbers and SVMP classification for other species sequences are shown in Table 2.
