The Z5/Z6 isoform. (A) Nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequences of the Z5/Z6 isoform. The BTB domain is indicated by a dotted underline. The primer positions for qPCR are indicated by lowercase letters. The triangle between positions 1176 and 1177 indicates the end of the core region. An asterisk indicates the stop codon (TGA). Sequences homologous to Z5 and Z6 in 3′ UTR are indicated by an underline and dashed underline, respectively. (B) Comparison of the deduced amino acid sequence of Z5 from Psacothea hilaris (Ph) with those of Z5 from Blattella germanica (Bg), Frankliniella occidentalis (Fo), Bombus terrestris (Bt), and Apis mellifera (Ap). Plus signs (+) indicate the conserved Cys and His residues of zinc fingers. Black shading indicates identical amino acid residues.
