Figure 1. Nucleotide sequence of the xynA gene and deduced amino acid sequence of XynA.
The open reading frame (ORF) exons are shown in bold. Upstream and downstream of the ORF is sequence obtained from the cDNA. The deduced protein sequence can be seen under the nucleotide sequence, and some relevant residues (E159, E265, C283, C289 and N285) are underlined. An asterisk indicates the stop codon. The signal peptide is in italics and the amino terminal obtained by Edman degradation has been underlined. Introns are in lowercase letters and are numbered. The putative polyadenylylation signal AATAAAA is underlined. Nucleotide and amino acid sequence numbering are on the right.
