Supplementary Figure 7: Alignment extension of experimentally characterized P. falciparum GST with PfFSmat60 matrix The sequences compared here are the experimentally characterized Glutathione S-transferase (GST) of P. falciparum, PF14_0187 and yeast Gtt2p (Glutathione S-transferase capable of homodimerization, gi:6322968). (a) The alignment with BLOSUM50 was only 22 amino acids (59 to 79 for query and 72 to 93 for subject). (b) A significantly improved alignment of 233 (1 to 209 for query and 15 to 232 for subject) amino acids is achieved using PfFSmat60 matrix. The fasta program (FASTA package, version 3) was used for alignment.
