Figure 1

Multiple alignment of representative predicted Pinophyta CLE protein amino acid sequences. A schematic diagram of a generic CLE protein representing the main features of CLE proteins is shown above the alignment. The amino (H2N) terminus of the schematic protein is followed by the signal peptide (SP), the first non-conserved sequence (NCS1), the CLE domain (CD) and the second non-conserved sequence (NCS2) found at the COOH terminus of some CLE proteins. Presumed cleavage sites of the SP and the mature CLE peptide sequence are indicated by large arrowheads. The multiple alignment depicts the individual SPs of each putative full-length protein sequence with grey highlighting. The SignalP 4.1-predicted cleavage sites are indicated by the small arrowheads. The CLE motif, comprising the CLE peptide sequences and the two semi-conserved amino acids at the amino termini of the predicted CLE peptides, is indicated by white lettering. The predicted CLE peptides are indicated by black highlighting and the remaining sequence of the CLE domain is indicated by dark yellow highlighting.
