Phylogeny of the slimfast gene family. Phylogeny was reconstructed in MrBayes v. 3.1.2. The aphid specific slimfast expansion is shown in the gray box. Posterior probability support for relationships is represented by branch width and style, as indicated in the key. Outgroup sequences were shown by Price et al.,  to belong to a closely related clade of the slimfast gene family. Gene IDs beginning with "ACYPI" belong to A. pisum and gene IDs beginning with "contig" belong to M. persicae.
