  1. P, Potorous tridactylus sequence; H, Homo sapiens sequence; M, Mus musculus sequence; R, Rattus norvegicus sequence. MCAK and Kif2a are kinesin-13 family members; Eg5 is a kinesin-5 family member; KifC1 (HSET) is a kinesin-14 family member; Kif18a is a kinesin-8 family member; NFYB is a histone-like protein analogous to H2B; RPLP0 is ribosomal protein, large, PO. FL, full-length protein. Accession numbers can be found in Table 3.
