Alignment of TAP1 genes from the wallaby and expressed transcripts isolated from spleen, blood and EST library. Amino acid alignment of TAP1 sequences. TAP1A_242G6 and TAP1B_6E22 are sourced from BACs in Contigs 1 and 2 respectively. MaeuTAP1A_Animal1 was sourced from a the spleen of animal1, TAP1B_EST is sourced from a mixed tissue EST library. MaeuTAP1A_Animal1, MaeuTAP1A_Animal2 and MaeuTAP1A_Animal3 were sourced from blood samples from Animals 1, 2 and 3 respectively. HosaTAP1 is included for comparison. Dashes indicate missing sequence, while dots indicate conserved residues. Exon boundaries are indicated by a number above the first residue of the exon. Residues thought to interact with the peptide are indicated by a line above the sequence.
