[…] The Physcomitrella patens subsp patens v1.1 database and the Phytozome Physcomitrella database ( were used to search for homologs using the Arabidopsis IRX10, IRX10-L, IRX9, IRX9-L, IRX14, IRX14-L, IRX8, PARVUS, GUX1 and GUX2 proteins. Sequences were aligned using Clustal-W software. Phylogenetic trees (Figure ) were computed using the neighbour-joining method [] as implemented in the Clustal-X software. The Phobius signal peptide and transmembrane prediction software was used for topological analysis ( [,]. […]
