Conserved sequences in Stl orthologs among eight Drosophila species

Stl-A isoform residue no.Stl-B isoform residue no.Stl-C isoform residue no.Description of domain
1–23287–324332–369Putative signal sequence of Stl-A
116–166417–467462–512Metalloprotease consensus
220–227521–528566–573Disintegrin-like domain
599–701900–1002945–1047C terminus
  • From analysis of homologous genomic sequences among eight Drosophila species, these four regions of highest homology potentially identify important Stl functional domains.
