Table 3 SMXL protein identity comparison

From: Strigolactone synthesis is ancestral in land plants, but canonical strigolactone signalling is a flowering plant innovation

  1. Protein identity comparisons between different SMXL groups. Pairwise identity scores were calculated for each of 167 full-length/near full-length proteins in our alignment, across the 477 amino acids used for phylogenetic reconstruction. For each seed plant sequence, we then averaged their % identity across non-seed plant sequences from SMXLA, SMXLB, SMXLD, SMXLE, SMXLF and SMXLJ clades. We then averaged these scores to reach an average % identity per clade (2nd column). Additionally, for each angiosperm SMXL4/SMXL39/SMXL3/SMXL9 sequence, we calculated % identity with gymnosperm SMXL4 sequences, then averaged across the clade (3rd column). Finally, for each angiosperm SMAX1/SMXL78/SMXL7/SMXL8 sequence, we calculated % identity with gymnosperm SMAX1 sequences, then averaged across the clade (4th column)
