  1. aAll 2206 FNT channels from bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes were considered for this analysis
  2. bResidue numbers correspond to that of formate channel structure as available in the PDB ID: 3KCU. Occurrence of these residues in the transmembrane segments or the functionally important loop region is also provided
  3. cPercentage conservation of the most frequently observed residue(s) is indicated in brackets
  4. dPercentage conservation as observed in all 2206 FNT channels
