[…] DRS and its homologous protein sequences were aligned by ClustalX (http://www.clustal.org/clustal2/) and the aligned sequences were then used to construct a neighbor-joining (NJ) tree on the basis of the Poisson substitution model with pairwise deletion of gaps (MEGA5). The phylogeny of Drosophila RP49 was constructed based on their nucleotide sequences by the NJ method with Tajima-Nei substitution model. […]
