Prolines are in red characters and position of transmembrane domain (TMD) and Motif I are indicated. Mammals are boxed in blue and include humans (Homo sapiens; AAH86312), mice (Mus musculus; NM_013524), cows (Bos taurus), dogs (Canis familiaris; NP_001005379) and possums (Monodelphis domestica; XP_001374334).
