Figure 4: Multiple sequence alignment of MSP putative functional homologues: and T. congolense TcoMSP-D, T. brucei TREU927 XM_823726, T. gambiense chromosome 11 MSP ORF3. The predicted amino acid sequences for each homologue were aligned using the ClustalW alignment tool. Output was directly generated using ClustalX for Windows. The dashed red box indicates a conserved motif shown to be essential for Zn2+ binding in related proteins.
