Phylogeny of PDCD4 homologs in higher and lower plants. Phylogenetic analysis of the aligned sequence comprising MA3 domains 1 to 4 for the four MA3 domain PDCD4 proteins of the plant species indicated. The phylogenetic tree was constructed using the maximum-likelihood method. Numbers on each branch denote percentages of bootstrap support. The MAT5/6/7 subgroup of monocots and dicots is shaded yellow, the MAT8 subgroup is shaded green, the PDCD4 homologs in gymnosperms is shaded purple, while those of early land plants and Chaetosphaeridium globosum are shaded blue and those in marine algae are shaded orange. Only partial sequences were available for C. globosum and P.abies MA_10693g0010.
