Figure 4

Sequence alignment and secondary structure predictions of N. gonorrhoeae Ape1 and CAZy CE3 carbohydrate esterases ( O -acetylxylan esterases). The residues in bold face denote at least 50% identity amongst the CE-3 esterases, while those highlighted in yellow denote identity with N. gonorrhoeae Ape1. Invariant residues are identified by the asterisks and the putative catalytic residues are in red. The numbers in brackets denote the length of intervening sequences. Abbreviations (accession numbers): Pa, P. aeruginosa (YP207682); Rf, Ruminococcus flavefaciens (XynB, Q52753; CesA, Q9RLB8); Nf, Neocallimastix frontalis (U66253); Np, N. patriciarum (O13497); An, Aspergillus nidulans, (EAA66937); Nsp, Nomomuraea species (Q7WZ50); Gv, Gloeobacter violaceus (Q7NGX3); Nc, Neurospora crassa (XM323878).
