Sequence alignment of four MA3 domain PDCD4 homologs in algae and land plants. Alignment of PDCD4 amino acid sequence is shown with amino acid identity relative to A. thaliana MAT5 highlighted in yellow amino acid and similarity highlighted in green. Each MA3 domain present in all proteins is indicated above the pertinent sequence. Protein sequences used were: At MAT5, Arabidopsis thaliana GenBank: NP_567708; At MAT6, GenBank: NP_568968; At MAT7, GenBank: NP_190411; At MAT8, GenBank: NP_173687; Pp, Physcomitrella patens GenBank: XP_001777050; Cb, Chaetosphaeridium globosum GenBank: HO379087; Vc, Volvox carteri GenBank: XP_002956063; and Cr, Chlamydomonas reinhardtii GenBank: XP_001696827.
