Amino acid sequence alignment of Ci-23c, Ci-220 and AD-873. The sequences of the Ci-23c and Ci-220 proteins from C. inanitus were aligned with the sequence of the AD-873 protein from Anopheles darlingi [GenBank:ACI30179.1]. Location of the chitin-binding Peritrophin-A (CBM_14) domains of Ci-23c are indicated by green lines under the alignment. Serine residues that potentially serve as glycosaminoglycan attachment sites are indicated by blue triangles. Red and green arrows indicate the beginning of the predicted signal peptide and mature protein sequences of Ci-23c, respectively.
