Figure S5. Phylogenetic tree of ABCA transporters from five insect spcies and the human. The phylogenetic tree was constructed using a neighbor-joining technique to analyze the amino acid sequences of the nucleotide binding domain (NBD). Analysis was performed with the program package MEGA4.0. The number at the branch point of the node represents the value resulting from 1000 replications and gaps were deleted with pairwise deletion method. Am, Apis mellifera; Ag, Anopheles gambiae; Bm, Bombyx mori; Dm, Drosophila melanogaster; Hs, Homo sapiens; Tc, Tribolium castaneum.
