Phylogenetic grouping of the myosin-11 subtypes suggests whole genome duplications. A) Maximum-likelihood topology generated under the JTT + Γ model in RAxML showing branch lengths for all class XI myosin motor domains of the apple Malus x domestica (Mad), the pear Pyrus x bretschneideri (Pxb) and the peach Prunus persica (Pup). The WGD at the origin of the Maleae [8] is indicated by green stars. B) Maximum-likelihood topology generated under the JTT + Γ model in RAxML showing branch lengths for all class XI myosin motor domains of Linum usitatissimum (Lu), Populus trichocarpa (Pot) and Ricinus communis (Ric). C) Maximum-likelihood topology generated under the JTT + Γ model in RAxML showing branch lengths for all class XI myosin motor domains of Gossypium raimondii (Gor), Theobroma cacao (Thc) and Carica papaya (Cip). The topologies of the trees are in accordance with those of ClustalW and MrBayes (data not shown). The scale bars correspond to estimated amino acid substitutions per site.
