Figure 5

Esmeraldo has a strain-specific deletion truncating the 5' ends of two genes. A) Schematic representation of the 236-bp deletion in Esmeraldo (34 nt of CR4, 105 nt of intergenic region, and 98 nt of ND4). B) Alignments of the N-terminus of predicted proteins from T. cruzi strains CL Brener and Esmeraldo, T. brucei and L. tarentolae. Conserved, alternative downstream start-site methionines are boxed.
