MOESM3 of Molecular basis determining species specificity for TLR2 inhibition by staphylococcal superantigen-like protein 3 (SSL3)

Additional file 3. Multiple sequence alignment of SSL3 sequences. The alignment shows SSL3 sequences from 34 S. aureus strains. The clonal complex (CC) of each strain is shown. Bovine and non-bovine strains are colored blue and black, respectively. Positions of residues required for forming the SSL3–TLR2 interface are shown with a red asterix. Sequences were aligned with ClustalW multiple alignment tool, and the alignment was colored using Jalview 2.1 according to the amount of sequence conservation (% Identity), in which a dark color indicates high sequence identity.
