KIFC1 is essential for normal spermatogenesis and its depletion results in early germ cell apoptosis in the Kuruma shrimp, Penaeus (Marsupenaeus) japonicus


Figure 3. Multiple sequence alignment of the KIFC1 protein in P. japonicus with that of other species. The ELKGNIRVFCRVRP sequence (blue frame) is the KIFC conserved consensus. The AYGQTGSGKT, SSRSH, and LAGSE sequences (red frame) are the putative ATP binding sites. The YNETIRDLL sequence (black frame) is the microtubule-binding site.
