Alignment of sequences homologous to the region around the 5'-UTR of OsRpl6-1 in the rice genome. See Figure 1 for a schematic representation of OsRpl6-1 above the sequence alignment. Sequence names are shown on the left, which are designated according to their chromosome (Chr) numbers except for OsRpl6-1. When more than one sequence exists on the same chromosome, they are distinguished as a, b or c, relative to their nucleotide positions in the database. The first nucleotide positions in the alignment are indicated within parentheses, and correspond to those of the Rice Annotation Project Database Build 4 . Nucleotides conserved in >60% of sequences are highlighted. Gaps were introduced to maximize the sequence identity. The presence of the corresponding cDNA in the given direction is indicated by asterisks at the sequence names. Sequences corresponding to the cDNAs are capitalized in the alignment. The first nucleotide of the OsRpl6-1 cDNA clone [accession no. AK119694] is indicated by a bent arrow. The GT dinucleotides at the 5'-border of the intron are shown within an empty box with a pink outline. Putative terminal inverted repeats (TIRs) and target site duplications (TSDs) are indicated by thick yellow arrows and small green arrows, respectively, according to the colors in Figure 1B.
