SspA structure and conservation across Bacillus species. (A) Multiple sequence alignment of B. subtilis SspA and its homologue proteins from representative Bacillus species. Conserved Ser47 residue is highlighted in solid red and other Ser residues are boxed in purple. The corresponding conservation level and consensus sequence are shown below. The multiple sequence alignment was constructed using Jalview. (B) Ribbon diagram of SspA (aa 12–65) protein (cyan) with bound DNA (pink). Ser47 (red) is located at the tip of the second alpha helix. The N and C protein terminals are absent from the structure. Protein structure was predicted by SWISS-MODEL ( http://swissmodel.expasy.org/ ). (PDF 205 kb)
