FIGURE 1: Comparison of Clec proteins in African trypanosomes.

(A) Alignment of C-type lectin-like domain (CTLD) from African trypanosomes Clec proteins. Sequences were extracted and aligned using MacVector V11. Putative critical cysteines important for protein folding are indicated (red boxes) as well as link module (black line). Dark grey boxes contain identical residues, light grey boxes contain conservative changes. TcIL3000, Trypanosoma congolense IL3000 (reference strain); Tb, Trypanosoma brucei brucei; Tbg, Trypanosoma brucei gambi-ense; Tv, Trypanosoma vivax. (B) General features shared by Clec proteins in T. congo-lense and T. b. brucei. TMD, transmembrane domain.
