Sequence analysis of BoTRAP2. a Graphic depiction of the partial BoTRAP2 domains. The functional domains (vWFA and TSP) including MIDAS for interaction, followed by a 23-AA transmembrane region. b Neighbor-joining tree based on the BoTRAP2 sequence obtained in this study and the related apicomplexan parasite sequences. A bootstrap test of 1000 replicates was performed with the values given at the nodes. c The tertiary structure and channel of BoTRAP2 constructed by using the SWISS-MODEL. The 3D structure in identical orientations contains nine α-helices (α1 and α9) and nine β-strands (β1 to β9). The metal ion-dependent adhesion site (MIDAS) for binding protein ligands includes partial vWFA domain and TSP domain
