Alignment of sequences surrounding the GAT and GA microsatellites located to the 5' side of most of the Sp185/333 genes. A region that is approximately 240 to 700 nucleotides 5' of each gene is shown. A GAT microsatellite is not present 5' of the A2 and E2 genes. The red boxes indicate the GAT microsatellite sequences; the green boxes indicate the GA microsatellite sequences. Dots indicate identity with respect to the sequence on the first line. The alignment was produced using MEGA  and edited by hand.
