Alignment of amino acid sequences of O. ochengi galectin compared to other nematode galectins. Alignment of amino acid sequences of O. ochengi galectin (O. och Gal) compared to galectins from O. volvulus (AAA20541.1), Brugia malayi (XP_001896448.1), Dirofilaria immitis (AAF37720.1), Haemonchus contortus (AAD11972.1), Teladorsagia circumcincta (AAC47546.1), Caenorhabditis elegans (NP_496165.3) and Pristionchus pacificus (PDM78135.1). Identical amino acids are highlighted in black while similar amino acids are highlighted in grey. Dashes indicate gaps in sequences. The carbohydrate recognition domains (CRD) are marked with arrows [32]. The # indicates the single amino acid exchange between O. ochengi and O. volvulus. In brackets, the amino acid identity and similarity is given compared to the O. ochengi sequence
