Pairwise comparisons of VTE1 orthologs from plants and cyanobacteria

Pair-wise comparisons were performed using ClustalW and are expressed as percentage amino acid similarity. The predicted mature plant protein sequences were used for alignments. Anabaena, Anabaena sp. PCC7120 (all0245); Nostoc, Nostoc punctiforme (506-74); Synecho, Synechococcus sp. PCC7002.
