Alignment of predicted amino acid sequences ofPhakopsora pachyrhiziESTs with similarity to MAS3 and other putative secreted fungal proteins. The predicted amino acid translation of five EST contigs from the P. pachyrhizi appressoria-enriched cDNA library aligned with MAS3 of Magnaporthe grisea (AAK52794), GEgh16 from Blumeria graminis (AAB05211), and putative secreted proteins from Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (XP_003331958) and Melampsora larici-populina (EGF99900, EGF99871, EGG08588). Asterisks indicate amino acid identities, and dots denote conserved amino acid substitutions. Putative signal peptide sequences are in bold.
