Genomic Analyses of the Microsporidian Nosema ceranae, an Emergent Pathogen of Honey Bees

Figure 1

Alignment of the 5′ region of six ribosomal protein genes in N. ceranae that contain predicted introns, together with the five orthologs of these genes in E. cuniculi.

Alignment begins with the start codon, which is interrupted by an intron in the ribosomal protein L19. The gene model for the E. cuniculi L6 protein was modified based on comparison with the N. ceranae nucleotide sequence and translation. Introns were manually aligned to illustrate regions of sequence conservation. Ncer = N. ceranae, Ecun = E. cuniculi.
