Alignment of the protein sequences of the sHSPs from A. ferrooxidans and other bacteria. Sequences were grouped as follows: Group A, the amino acid sequences from the A. ferrooxidans sHSPs; Group B, sHSP sequences from phylogenetically related species; Group C, sHSPs with three-dimensional structure established and with chaperone activity characterized; Group D, sHSPs with chaperone activity from gamma-proteobacteria; Group E, the amino acid sequence from the well-characterized sHSP from Triticum aestivum.
