Comparison of the human MBD proteins and their mouse homologues. Identity scores were calculated with the LALIGN program (http://www.ch.embnet.org/software/LALIGN_form.html webcite). The numbers of amino acid (aa) residues are indicated. a) The number of aligned amino acids can exceed the residue number of the sequences due to gaps inserted by the algorithm.
