Alignment of the amino acid sequence for TSTI0001C, fromT. stigmurusvenom glands, with known sequences of antimicrobial peptides. Residues are numbered according to the aligned antimicrobial peptide sequences and dots represent gaps introduced to improve alignment. The underlined amino acids indicate the putative signal peptide. A possibly promature peptide is shown in yellow font and the putative post-translational signal GRR is in italics. Green, red and gray indicate amino acids that are identical, conserved or similar, respectively. The abbreviation and GenBank accession number for aligned antimicrobial peptide sequences are: Tityus costatus antimicrobial peptide (Q5G8B3), Mucroporin, Lychas mucronatus (B9UIY3), Bmkb1, Mesobuthus martensii (Q718F4) and Caerin-2 Mesobuthus eupeus (ABL68083).
