Recent gene duplications of the Caspase-4 gene in M. sexta. (A) Amino acid alignment of the Caspase-4 sequences from B. mori and M. sexta. Identical amino acids are shaded in grey. (B) Schematic representation of the genomic region surrounding the Caspase-4 gene deduced from a B. mori scaffold. Gene annotation was performed using Kaikogaas.
