Relationships among representative members of MIKCc-type genes. a. The phylogenetic tree was based on MUSCLE alignments of conceptual protein sequences spanning the MADS-, I- and K-domains of sequences from Arabidopsis, rice, poplar and soybean. The unrooted bootstrap consensus tree was constructed using the Maximum Likelihood method implemented in Mega 5. The number for each node is the bootstrap percentages (200 replications), and nodes with less than 50% bootstrap values were collapsed. Fifteen clades of MIKCc-type genes are indicated, with PsMADS3 potentially representing a novel sister clade of AGL6.
