  • Similarity scores between the ORF of Rp1-D and other rp1 family members were calculated by using the Bestfit program in the GCG Wisconsin Package. The N terminus corresponds to the first 1485 nucleotides of the ORF of the Rp1-D gene and includes the NBS domain. The C terminus corresponds to the 3′ 2377 nucleotides of the Rp1-D gene including the LRR domain. The ORF of the truncated rp1-dp4 gene ends 1396 nucleotides after the beginning of the open reading frame.
