From: A natural barrier to lateral gene transfer from prokaryotes to eukaryotes revealed from genomes: the 70 % rule

Fig. 5

Close-up of the distribution of small-sized high-identity clades (HICs). HICs with up to one-third of the total taxa are shown for each group in Figs. 2 and 3 (with x-axis plotted to the same scale for each group). ah Prokaryotic groups. i All eukaryote clades. j Eukaryotes with clades of plastid origin (shown in green in i) selectively removed. The seven proteins having >70 % sequence identity to prokaryotic homologs but appearing in more than one eukaryotic genome are annotated as (from left to right): fructose-bisphosphate aldolase, unknown (carbohydrate transport and metabolism), homocitrate synthase, component of cytochrome b6f complex, ribulose-phosphate 3-epimerase, pyridoxal biosynthesis, and adenosylhomocysteinase
