Fig. 2

The cDNA sequence of SibaCec precursor and the alignment of the amino acid sequence of SibaCec with six known cecropin-like peptide precursors from three black fly species. a Deduced amino acid sequence is shown below the cDNA sequence. The putative signal peptide is italicized and the amino acid sequence of mature peptide is underlined and bold. The stop codon is indicated by an asterisk. Amino acid numbers or nucleotide numbers are shown after the sequences. b Six known cecropin-like peptide precursors in three black fly species are from Refs. [68]. The symbols under the alignment indicate: (*) identical sites; (:) conserved sites; (.) less conserved sites. Dashes are inserted to optimize the alignment
