Additional File 2:

Protein sequence alignment of zebrafish β1 sequences with human and Ciona β1 orthologs. Alignment was performed using Clustal X and is displayed using Boxshader. Levels of sequence conservation are indicated (>50% identical, red; conservative substitutions, blue). Note that the refined Ciona β1 sequence [8] is missing the signal peptide, the PSI domain and part of the hybrid domain.
