Alignment of the amino acid sequence for TSTI0012C, from T. stigmurus venom glands, with known sequences of anionic peptides. Residues are numbered according to aligned anionic peptides sequences and dots represent gaps introduced to improve alignment. The underlined amino acids indicate the putative signal peptide. Conserved acidic residues (D and E) are indicated by asterisks. Green, red and gray indicate amino acids that are identical, conserved or similar, respectively. The abbreviation and GenBank accession number for aligned anionic peptide sequences are: Tityus costatus anionic peptide (Q5G8B1), Tityus discrepans anionic peptide (C9X4J1), Tityus martensii anionic peptide (Q8N0N8).
