Multiple sequence alignment of peptidase M8 domains of the Miamiensis avidus leishmanolysin family proteins. The peptidase M8 domains of M. avidus leishmanolysin family proteins MaPro 14 – MaPro 16 were aligned with the previously deposited protozoan sequences in protein databases. The zinc-binding signature, HEXXH motif conserved in many kinds of metallopeptidases is shown in bold and in square box, and cysteine residues are presented in bold. The GenBank accession numbers of aligned leishmanolysin family proteins of Ichthyophtirius multifiliis, Leishmania donovani and Tetrahymena thermophila are EGR30431, XP_001024633 and AAA29244, respectively.
