Multiple sequence alignment of predicted amino acid sequences of DGAT1 proteins. DGAT1 sequences from A. thaliana (Ath), M. truncatula (Mtr), R. comunis (Rco), O. sativa (Osa), Z. mays (Zma) and M. musculus (Mmu), and ACAT proteins from M. musculus and S. cerevisieae (Sce) were aligned. Identical residues are shaded black, and similar residues are shaded gray. The DAG/phorbol ester binding signature motif is underlined with a dotted line; the triangle (▼) shows the conserved phenylalanine. The conserved motif between DGAT1 and ACATs is underlined.
