Alignment of deduced amino acid sequences of A) LIM and B) DAR protein groups using PIR. Solid boxes indicate UIM and LIM domains. Underline indicates highly conserved C-terminus. Asterisks show conserved cysteine and histidine residues (zinc-binding motifs) in the highly conserved LIM domains and C-terminus. Numbers in the right margin indicate the positions of amino acid residues. Identical amino acids are indicated by a dark background, while > 50% similarities are indicated by a light background.
