Domain structure of G. intestinalis PufSF proteins. a The Pumilio homology domain containing Puf repeats was predicted using HHPred against Pfam database and denoted as oval for each of the Giardia intestinalis proteins (shades of brown). The numbers in the ovals represent the position of the domain within the protein (black lines). The expectation value (E value) of the domain detection is shown in brackets. The fruit fly, human, and fungal orthologues are shown for comparison. Gi, Giardia intestinalis; Dm, Drosophila melanogaster; Hs, Homo sapiens; Sc, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. b Protein sequence alignment of G. intestinalis Pufs with selected proteins from S. cerevisiae, D. melanogaster, and H. sapiens. Open red rectangles highlight TRMs. Light and dark grey rectangles depict Puf repeats. Fraction of identical amino acids at the particular position is coloured: dark blue > 80%, blue > 60%, light blue > 40%, white < 40%
