Phylogenetic relationship and protein motifs of OsLHT1 and its homologs. a Phylogenetic tree of OsLHT1 and its homologs from maize, sorghum, Brachypodium and Arabidopsis. With the exception of OsLHT1–6 and AtLHT1–10, the first two letters of each protein label represent the abbreviated species name, followed by GenBank accession number. Zm, Zea mays; Sb, Sorghum bicolor; Bd, Brachypodium distachyon. The phylogenetic tree was constructed by Mega 6.0 software using ClustalW for the alignment and the neighbour-joining method for the construction of the phylogeny [28]. The bootstrap values, shown at the nodes, are percentages for 1000 replications. The red triangle marks the OsLHT1. b Schematic representation of conserved motifs in OsLHT1–6 and its closest homologs in maize, sorghum, Arabidopsis and Brachypodium. Each motif is represented by different color boxes. The order of the motifs corresponds to their position within individual protein sequences
