Comparison of basal angiosperm and gymnosperm PDCD4 homologs with other land plants. Alignment of PDCD4 amino acid sequence is shown with amino acid identity relative to A. thaliana MAT5 highlighted in yellow and similarity highlighted in green. Each MA3 domain present in all proteins is indicated above the pertinent sequence. The deletions present in Cycas micholitz, Sundacarpus amarus, Illicium floridanum, Amborella trichopoda, Austrobaileya scandens are outlined in red. Protein sequences used were: At MAT5, Arabidopsis thaliana GenBank: NP_567708; At MAT8, GenBank: NP_173687; Ae MAT5, Aristolochia elegans PAWA5255; Ae MAT8, Aristolochia elegans PAWA2930; Zm MAT5, Zea mays GenBank: NP_001147914; Zm MAT8, Zea mays GenBank: NP_001159302; Pa, Picea abies MA_2314g0010; If MAT5, Illicium floridanum VZCI-11530; Am MAT5, Amborella trichopoda URDJ-37850; As MAT5, Austrobaileya scandens FZJL-1758; Cm, Cycas micholitz XZUY-1711; Sa, Sundacarpus amarus 13902; Sm, Selaginella moellendorffii GenBank: XP_002979104; Pp, Physcomitrella patens GenBank: XP_001754785.
