Dinoflagellate LSU rRNA sequences aligned to those of their fragmented apicomplexan counterparts. Intact LSU rRNAs from the mitochondrion of a ciliate and plant and from a bacterium are included in the alignment. Color groups indicate distinct rRNA cDNAs with oligoadenylation shown in italics. K. micrum genomic sequence (gen) is included for LSUE, LSUG and RNA10 (lowercase sequence denotes primer sites used for RNA10 gen). Yellow highlights differences between K. micrum genomic and cDNA sequences. Red box indicates the conserved domain of the sarcin/ricin loop represented in RNA10 sequences. K.mic, Karlodinium micrum; H.tri, Heterocapsa triquetra; C.coh, Crypthecodinium cohnii; P.fal, Plasmodium falciparum M76611; A.tha, Arabidopsis thaliana, Y08501; T.pyr, Tetrahymena pyriformis, M58010; E.col, Escherichia coli, D12649.
