Comparison of the MA3 domains of A. thaliana with those of the basal angiosperm A. trichopoda. The individual MA3 domains of A. thaliana MAT5 (GenBank: NP_567708) and the basal angiosperm A. trichopoda (URDJ-37850) were aligned to show the relative positions of the deletions (highlighted in red) present in the MA3 domains of A. trichopoda PDCD4. Amino acid identity is highlighted in yellow, similarity is highlighted in green.
