Comparing mature MCP2 proteins of Leporid and Other-Mammals. The consensual numbering of amino acid positions used in functional studies of MCP ligands is shown (e.g. ). Pseudogenes are translated according to a nucleotide alignment respecting the reading frame of functional homologs. Positions where leporid MCP-2 differs markedly from the mammalian consensus are highlighted in gray if inferred from ‘functional’ genes, or in black in case differences would be limited to pseudogenes. leeu: European brown hare, legr: Granada hare; syfl: Western cottontail rabbit; orcu: European rabbit, sps. cuniculus; oral: European rabbit, sps. algirus, bumo: South African Riverine rabbit. GenBank Accession of the underlying “Other-Mammal” sequences are listed in Additional file 9.
