Ginger and turmeric PKSs that are not bona fide chalcone synthases cluster into two
major groups, WtPKS1-like (DKS-like) and WtPKS2-like (CURS-like), in a neighbor-joining
similarity tree (parsimony and maximum likelihood approaches produce similar trees).
Abbreviations are as follows: WtPKS, Wachendorfia thyrsiflora
ynthase; CURS, turmeric
ynthass; other PKSs as indicated. In many cases, branches of the tree represent a
large number of related sequences, for example, the branch called “Marchantia paleacea
PKSs” consisted of four closely related sequences, whereas the branch called “Large
Cluster of Rice PKSs” represented over 20 sequences, and the branch called “Other
Chalcone Synthases” represented over 100 sequences.
