Conservation of PRR20 in primates. Alignment of the predicted amino-acid sequence of the PRR20 protein from great apes and macaque. The primate is listed to the left, as is the amino-acid residue number. Identical amino-acids are highlighted in black, amino-acids with similar properties are black letters shaded grey and divergent residues are black letters on a white background. Gaps in the alignment are represented by dashes. Alignments were prepared using ClustalW2 webcite and the output used to generate the shaded version shown using the Boxshade 3.21 server webcite. Chimp sequence obtained from Pan troglodytes genome assembly (CGSC 2.1/panTro2) using the UCSC genome browser webcite. Gorilla sequence obtained from Gorilla gorilla genome assembly (gorGor3) using the Ensembl genome browser webcite. Orangutan sequence obtained from a complete Pongo abelii BAC clone (Accession Number AC206922). Macaque sequence obtained from Macaca mulatta genome assembly (rheMac2) using the UCSC genome browser.
