[…] To identify Nup98 homologues in different plant species, homolog search against the NCBI non-redundant (NR) protein database ( was performed using APIP12 as a query. Accession numbers of the homologues are as follows: LOC_Os12g06870 and LOC_ Os12g06890 (Oryza sativa, identified from rice genome database:, NP_172510 (Arabidopsis thaliana), BAF98996 (Daucus carota), XP_010660457 (Vitis vinifera), XP_002317654 (Populus trichocarpa), XP_008673404 (Zea mays), BAK00061 (Hordeum vulgare), and XP_002446695 (Sorghum bicolor). Protein sequences were aligned using the Clustalw2 program ( with the default parameters. The phylogenetic tree was viewed by using the neighbor-joining method of the MEGA 4.1 software (Tamura et al. ). A bootstrap analysis with 1000 replicates was performed to test the confidence of topology. We included Nup98 in human as an outgroup (Accession No. : AAH41136) in the phylogenetic analysis. […]
