A comparison of predicted protein family domains in mtMutS, MutS and MSH amino acid sequences. The results of SMART database queries for an exemplar octocoral mtMutS sequence (GenBank Acc. # AAP92775) vs. the predicted domain organization of the Acanthamoeba polyphaga mimivirus (YP_142713), E. coli (CAQ33065) and yeast (NP_011988). 'Domain I', 'II', 'III' and 'V' refer to MutS/MSH-specific domains; 'HNH' refers to the HNH endonuclease domain.
