A. Multiple alignment of related sequences to Dh Ahp. The alignment was performed using the software of CLUSTAL W program http://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/clustalw2/index.html. Asterisks indicate identical amino acids and periods show conserved amino acid substitutions. Percent of overall identity similarity (in parentheses): 1. DhAhp; 2. AHP1 of S. cerevisiae (Swiss-Prot: P38013) (30%); 3. PMP20 of S. pombe (Swiss-Prot: O14313) (33%); 4. AHP11 of C. albicans (Swiss-Prot: Q5AF44) (58%); 5. peroxiredoxin of P. tremula (Swiss-Prot: Q8S3L0) (34%); 6. peroxiredoxin of P. sativum (Swiss-Prot: B3GV28) (37%); 7. peroxiredoxin of H. sapiens (Swiss-Prot: P30044) (25%). Cys54, conserved in all Prxs, is identified as the peroxidative cysteine. B. The phylogenetic relationship between Dh Ahp and peroxiredoxin from other organisms.
