Phylogenetic trees of circadian clock genes in several plant species. Phylogenetic trees of (A) LHY/CCA1, (B) TOC1, (C) ZTL and (D) FKF1/ADO3. Full-length amino acid sequences were aligned using the Geneious software. Phylogenetic trees were constructed with available sequences from 3 major taxonomical groups: eudicots, monocots and one moss Selaginella moellendorffii for TOC1 and ZTL trees. Unweighted Pair Group Method with the Arithmetic Mean (UPGMA) method from the numbers of amino acid substitutions by applying the Jukes-Cantor model was used. The scale bar represents the number of amino acid substitutions per site. Ac, Allium cepa; At, Arabidopsis thaliana; Cs, Castanea sativa; Gm, Glycine max; In, Ipomoea nil; Mc, Mesembryanthemum crystallinum; Na, Nicotiana attenuata; Os, Oryza sativa; Pn, Populus nigra; Pt, Populus trichocarpa; Pv, Phaseolus vulgaris; Sb, Sorghum bicolor; Sl, Solanum lycopersicum; Sm, Selaginella moellendorffii; Vv, Vitis vinifera; Ta, Triticum aestivum; Zm, Zea mays.
