Analysis of vertebrate MarvelD3 sequences. (A) Human MarvelD3 isoforms; (B) human, mouse and dog isoform 1 and chicken variant B; and (C) human, mouse and dog isoform 2 and chicken, Xenopus and zebrafish variant A were aligned with ClustalW http://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/clustalw2/ webcite using default settings. In panel A, the cytosolic domains are highlighted in blue, the transmembrane domains in orange, and the extracellular domains in green. The splice junction between the N-terminal domain shared by both isoforms and the alternative domains is indicated by two arrows. In panels B and C, the amino acid residues conserved in mammalian MarvelD3 sequences are highlighted in yellow. Conservation is labelled according to ClustalW definitions: identical residues (*); conserved substitutions (:); semi-conserved substitutions (.).
