Schematic alignment showing regions of AMEL exons 1–5 that were identified in Chrysemys picta and Pelodiscus sinensis . Bars below sequence numbers show regions of sequence similarity between Alligator mississippiensis and both testudines (green) or A. mississippiensis and one testudine (chartreuse). Dark blue rectangles = numbered exons in A. mississippiensis; red rectangles = frameshift mutations in C. picta; light blue rectangles = indels within the coding sequence that are in multiples of three bp; dark blue arrow = position of start codon in A. mississippiensis; red arrow = position of stop codon in A. mississippiensis.
