Conserved domain analysis of RNase III proteins with Clustal Omega. The alignment of our target protein with the structurally characterized bacterial RNase III was performed using the Clustal W multiple sequence alignment method. Conserved residues are indicated with gray rectangles; conserved residues between all characterized bacterial RNase III proteins are indicated with black rectangles. The signature motif consists of 9–10 residues that are almost conserved between all aligned sequences. RNA binding motifs (RBM1-4) and linker sequence are indicated by black lines. In addition, the important residues that are involved in active site and Phe61 which has an important role in dimerization of the enzyme are indicated by black squares and a black circle, respectively
