Matching amino acids are highlighted in black. The amino acid identity between Ef silicatein-M1 and Lb silicatein α2 is 92.9%, that between Ef silicatein-M2 and Lb silicatein α1 is 96.0%, that between Ef silicatein-M3 and Lb silicatein α4 is 92.6%, and that between Ef silicatein-M4 and Lb silicatein α3 is about 90.5%.|
