Figure 1.

The multiple amino acid alignment of the SSB proteins under study, with the SSBs from psychrophilic, mesophilic and thermophilic bacteria. The alignments were performed by dividing the amino acids into six similarity groups: group 1 V, L, I, M, group 2 W, F, Y, group 3 E, D, group 4 K, R, group 5 Q, D, and group 6 S, T. The capital letters represent single amino acid codes. White fonts on black boxes represent 100% similarity, white fonts on grey boxes denote <80% similarity, and black fonts on grey boxes show <60% similarity. Abbreviations: DpsSSB Desulfotalea psychrophila (NCBI Reference Sequence: WP_011189820.1), FpsSSB Flavobacterium psychrophilum (NCBI Reference Sequence: WP_011963776.1), ParSSB Psychrobacter arcticus (NCBI Reference Sequence: AAZ19531.1), PcrSSB Psychrobacter cryohalolentis (NCBI Reference Sequence: ABE75735.1), PinSSB Psychromonas ingrahamii (NCBI Reference Sequence: WP_011771629.1), PprSSB Photobacterium profundum (NCBI Reference Sequence: WP_011219846.1), PtoSSB Psychroflexus torquis (NCBI Reference Sequence: WP_015023871.1), SwoSSB Shewanella woodyi (NCBI Reference Sequence: WP_012323283.1), EcoSSB Escherichia coli K12 (NCBI Reference Sequence: YP_492202.1), BsuSSB Bacillus subtilis (NCBI Reference Sequence: NP_391970.1), TteSSB3 Thermoanerobacter tengcongensis MB4 (NCBI Reference Sequence: AAM25884.1), and TmaSSB Thermotoga maritima MSB8 (NCBI Reference Sequence: WP_004081225.1). An arrow indicates the boundary between the N-and C-terminal domains.
