Figure 2.

The Mimivirus DNA polymerase PolB intein. The 351 amino acid residues intein sequence is shown with, respectively, the last and the first three amino acid residues of the N-extein and the C-extein. Bold letters represent amino acid residues essential for protein splicing. Conserved intein sequence motifs are indicated by underlines (N1, N2, N3, EN1, EN2, EN3, EN4, C2 and C1). The sequence part matching to the Pfam LAGLIDADG endonuclease domain (PF00961, E-value = 0.16) is indicated by italic letters. The intein/extein boundaries are shown by '|'.
