Parallel Germline Infiltration of a Lentivirus in Two Malagasy Lemurs

Figure 3

Alignment between a 71 aa region of the RT domain of the primate lentiviruses and the orf2 (46 aa)−env (25 aa) junction of pSIV.

Shading of the different positions represents the level of sequence conservation using the BLOSUM 62 amino acid substitution matrix in BioEdit (Hall, 2004). In addition, each asterisk indicates positions where pSIV amino acids are shared with at least one other primate lentivirus sequence. Accession numbers of the sequences are listed in Table S2.
