Figure 4

Consensus sequences of chromodomain of Polycomb homologues. Represented in MSA format, the consensus of each CBX protein and the consensus pattern of insect PC are shown in the alignment. The residues conserved across the homologues are highlighted in green and residues that are selectively conserved in one or more proteins are highlighted in gray. √ - The key residues of Drosophila PC for H3K27Me3 interaction and PC dimerization.
