Table 1 Correlation between some relevant residues in E. coli CusA with the corresponding residues in the CzrA and NczA orthologs

From: Two RND proteins involved in heavy metal efflux in Caulobacter crescentus belong to separate clusters within proteobacteria

  1. aThe numbers correspond to the positions in C. crescentus CzrA and NczA proteins, respectively. The correspondence was determined by sequence alignment made using the PHYRE2 program [44].
  2. b Conservation profile within the CzrA-like proteins and in the NczA-like proteins (in parentheses). A conserved residue was considered the residue most prevalent (more than 75% conserved) in that position within the CzcA orthologous groups. In bold and italic are shown the residues absolutely conserved and ----- is not conserved.
