Sequence analysis of Hc-hrg-2 in H. contortus. a The hrg-2 genes of H. contortus and C. elegans. Pink boxes represent exons. The numbers above the pink boxes represent the positions in the genomes. b The putative domains of Hc-HRG-2. The transmembrane domain (TMD) was predicted by the TMHMM 2.0. The thioredoxin N-terminal domain-like (GST-N) and a glutathione S-transferase C-terminal domain-like (GST-C) folds were predicted using InterPro. c Multiple sequence alignment of Hc-HRG-2 with Ce-HRG-2 (WormBase ID: WBGene00010473) and Hc-GST-1 (GenBank: AF281663) by Clustal W method (Lasergene MegAlign software). d Phylogenetic analysis of HRG-2 sequences. Aligned protein sequences were subjected to phylogenetic analysis using the MEGA 5.1 software
