This figure shows the upper quartile of a protein sequence alignment of T. castaneum cys-loop LGIC subunits, for the full image please see Additional file 2. Drosophila Dα1 and RDL are included for comparison. N-terminal signal leader peptides are shown in lower case and loops implicated in ligand binding (LpA-F) are indicated. Putative N-glycosylation sites are boxed and amino acid residues altered by RNA editing are circled.
