Amino acid sequence alignment of Ci-23a and the venom protein from C. sp near curvimaculatus. The amino acid sequence of the venom protein from C. sp near curvimaculatus was retrieved from GenBank [GenBank:ACI70208.1]. The position of a potential cleavage site for both N-arginine dibasic convertase and subtilisin-like proprotein convertase is boxed in black in the Ci-23a sequence. Red and green arrows indicate the beginning of the predicted signal peptide and mature protein sequences of Ci-23a, respectively. Serine residues that potentially serve as glycosaminoglycan attachment sites are indicated by blue triangles under the sequence of the venom protein from C. sp near curvimaculatus. Sequence printed in bold was also obtained by N-terminal sequencing of the Ci-23a protein.
