Alignment of the two forms of Anolis carolinensis GAPD-2 mRNA. The sequence of protein product is represented; the possible start codons are in bold. Translation of the full-length mRNA seems to begin from the first start codon and the protein product will possess the proline-rich domain (shown in italic). The shortened mRNA lacks the first start codon. Therefore translation should begin from the second one resulting in a protein product without the proline-rich domain.
