Table 2: Summary of protist eIF4E family member characteristics. A selection of Clade 1 and Clade 2 protist eIF4E family members is shown, looking at the residue at positions equivalent to W46, W56, W73, W113 in human eIF4E-1; presence or absence of a Ser residue at the position equivalent to S209 in human eIF4E-1; presence or absence of insertions; the sequence of the sequence of the eIF4G-binding domain. Shading indicates Amoebozoa (Pale yellow); nucleomorph (Gray); haptophyte (Aqua); alveolate, apicomplexan (Yellow); alveolate dinoflagellate/Perkinsus (Pink); excavate (Aquamarine) eIF4Es.
