An analytical view on the PP2C gene family in rice. The following parts are shown from left to right. Protein distance tree: The unrooted tree was constructed using aligned full-length amino acid sequences and summarizes the phylogenetic relationship among the 78 members of PP2C family in rice. The tree shows the 11 major phylogenetic subfamilies (marked with different alternating tones of a gray background) with high bootstrap support value (≥ 50%) based on 1000 replicates. The same designations for gene families as in Figure 1 are used. Singleton rice sequences corresponding to the J and L clades from Arabidopsis are indicated. Gene structure: The gene structures are represented by white boxes symbolizing untranslated regions, black boxes symbolizing exons, and spaces between boxes corresponding to introns. Gene models are drawn to scale as indicated on top. Protein structure: Each colored box with a number represents a specific motif in the protein identified using the MEME motif search tool. The order of the motifs corresponds to their position within individual protein sequences. Numbers between the colored boxes indicate the number of amino acid residues between the motifs.
