Alignment of conserved regions of angiosperm CENP-C predicted proteins. (a) Short regions of conservation are encoded in the first six exons of Cenpc genes from five families. The dipeptide SQ (underlined) is relatively frequent in exon 5. (b) Multiple alignment reveals strong conservation in the carboxyl termini of encoded proteins from six families. The CENPC motif is indicated. At, A. thaliana; Mt, barrel medic; Os, rice; Zm, maize CENP-CA; St, potato; SLe, tomato; Bv, beet; Pbt, black cottonwood.
