Figure 1

Sequence alignment of deduced amino acids of the A. baylyi thioesterase (‘AcTesA) with the thioesterase I of E. coli (‘TesA). The expressed ‘AcTesA has 37.97% amino acid sequence identity to the ‘TesA protein sequence, and shares the same catalytic-triad residues as ‘TesA, suggesting that ‘AcTesA may function as a SGNH-hydrolase. The grey backgrounds indicate the identical amino acid residues between ‘AcTesA and ‘TesA. The asterisk marked residues represent the speculated catalytic triad.
