Alignments of 5’ ends of the genomic and inferred CDS sequences of albumin 1 homologs from five Phelipanche species (for 3’ end, see Additional file
: Figure S4). Two genes are identified from P. aegyptiaca unigene 12653 (first five sequences, red bar) and unigene 75797 (yellow bar). Red box indicates the intron region identified by comparison of the genomic DNA and cDNA sequences. Blue box indicates the putative translation start codon.
