Amino acid sequence alignment of potential catalytic domains of CDA with orthologs from other insect species.

<p>Partial amino acid sequences (annotations are shown according to NCBI reference sequences) from <i>Anopheles gambiae</i> (XP_316929), <i>Culex quinquefasciatus</i> (XP_001848571 and XP_001868428), <i>Drosophila melanogaster</i> (NP_001097045), and <i>Tribolium castaneum</i> (NP_001103739) were aligned with <i>IsCDA</i> using the GENETYX software. The chitin-binding and catalytic domains are indicated with dark lines, while CDA motifs are denoted by gray boxes.</p>
