Comparison of the KS domain with KASI from plants. Red boxes represent conserved residues directly involved in the catalysis. Blue boxes represent conserved residues interacting with substrate, and the green box represents a glycine motif in the C-terminus. PUFA-KS, PUFA synthase (PRJNA368972); At, Arabidopsis thaliana (NM_001036941); Jc, Jatropha curcas L. (KDP37953) Nt, Nicotiana tabacum (KX033513); Os, Oryza sativa (LOC_Os06g09630)
