From: Identification of a new family of enzymes with potential O-acetylpeptidoglycan esterase activity in both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria

Figure 5

Sequence alignment of family 1 O -acetylpeptidoglycan esterases (Ape) and identification of consensus motifs. The residues in bold face and yellow highlight denote greater than 50% identity amongst the subfamilies (1A, 1B, 1C) and the entire family, respectively, while those in red are invariant amongst all sequences. The numbers in brackets denote the length of intervening sequences and the potential catalytic residues are identified with the red asterisks. Abbreviations (accession numbers): Ng, N. gonorrhoeae (AAW89270); Nm, N. meningitidis (NP284202); Cv, Chromobacterium violaceum (NP903734); Pl, Photorhabdus luminescens (NP927853); Cj, Campylobacter jejuni, (NP281792); Cc, Campylobacter coli (ZP00366778); Cu, Campylobacter upsaliensis (ZP00369960); Hh, Helicobacter hepaticus (NP860613); Bt, Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron (1b, NP811595; 1c, NP811594); Bf, Bacteroides. fragilis (1b, YP101414; 1c, NP811594); Pg, Porphyromonas gingivalis (1b, NP905385; 1c, NP905384); Zm, Zymomonas mobilis (1b, YP162180).
