Sequence alignment of the COMT family of Brachypodium distachyon and other species. Amino acid sequence comparison of the four COMT proteins in B. distachyon with functionally characterized COMT proteins in Triticum aestivum (TaCM), Festuca arundinacea (FaCOMT), Sorghum bicolor (Sbbmr12), Zea mays (Zmbm3), Panicum virgatum (PviCOMT), and Oryza sativa (OsCOMT). The conserved motif for the SAM binding domain is labeled in pink, catalytic residues are labeled in green, and active site substrate-binding residues are labeled in blue.
