Sequence alignment of BTB domains of ZBTB transcription factors identifies a unique central region in PATZ1 that is conserved in mammals. (a) Sequence alignment of PATZ1 BTB domains from selected vertebrate species. The unique central sequence of the A2/B3 loop that is conserved in mammals and is missing in fish and amphibians is indicated in bold. (b) Sequence alignment of selected human ZBTB proteins and their predicted secondary structure. The sequences of the human PATZ1 and cKrox BTB domains with their unique extra region between the A2 helix and B3 strand are shown above. The PATZ1 amino acids that correspond to this region without electron-density assignments from the crystal structure are shown in bold. Arrows and rods identify predicted conserved β-strand and α-helical regions. The eight BTB domains with solved structures are annotated on the left with their common names in addition to the ZBTB nomenclature. Shading, asterisks, colons and periods identify conserved residues according to the Clustal format. A consensus sequence is shown at the bottom, with the three predicted degron residues involved in BTB domain stability indicated by arrows.
