Fig. 1

Alignment of MAR domains of EtMIC3 (7 repeats) (a) and four EtMCPs (MCP2, 1 repeat; MCP3, 3 repeats; MCP4, 4 repeats; MCP5, 2 repeats) (b). High/low similarity is represented by different intensities of red/blue, respectively. Green boxes indicate conserved cysteines (C); purple boxes indicate conserved residues; orange boxes indicate LxxY residue within the ɑ-helix/loop extension of MAR type I; yellow boxes indicate HxT/HxS residue coordinating binding to the sialic acid saccharides
