Sequence alignment of BoLA-T5 and BoLA-1*02301 molecules and identification of amino acid differences in the peptide-binding groove. Panel A: MUSCLE alignment of BoLA-T5 and BoLA-1*02301 amino acid sequence; differences in amino acid sequence is highlighted by the red letters; asterisks (*) in red indicate amino acids that map to the pseudo-sequence of 34 amino acids that were defined as in contact with peptide; sequence highlighted in yellow indicate the signal peptide; sequence highlighted in grey indicate the α1 domain; sequence highlighted in blue indicate the α2 domain; sequence highlighted in purple indicate the α3 domain. Panel B: Ribbon drawing of the BoLA-2*01801 [43] molecule with position of all amino acid differences in the α2 (highlighted in blue) and α3 (highlighted in purple) domains between BoLA-T5 and BoLA-1*02301. Amino acids that map to the pseudo-sequence are illustrated in red; amino acids that do not map to the pseudo-sequence are illustrated in green. The β2m molecule is illustrated in orange and the peptide in black.
