Schematic representation of sequence alignment of cDNAs encoding B. neuwiedi SVMPs. Complete cDNA sequences were aligned using the Blastn program for multiple sequences alignments using as query BnMP-III1 sequence (additional file 1). Boxes represent similarity regions (5'UTR plus mature protein coding regions or 3'UTR) with %identities in relation to the query. Triangles represent positions of complementary regions (⇆) and circles represent the repeated regions (⇉) relatively to BnMP-III1 sequence. DM corresponds to the approximate position of the RGD or ECD motifs in disintegrins or disintegrin-like domains, respectively. Dots represent the gaps corresponding to cysteine-rich or disintegrin-like/cysteine-rich domains introduced to maximize sequence alignments.
