aEnzymes in a box that are marked with the symbol ¥ following the name currently cannot be distinguished from one another with great confidence using the query-tag sequences given.

bSpacing within a box indicates distinctly separated analog or sub-homolog groupings, with the exception of what is covered in footnotea.  Asterisk superscripts indicate signal peptides in prokaryotes, whereas green asterisk superscripts indicate transit peptides in higher plants.

cUse this query to assure that a putative AroAsequence is not in fact a KdsA sequence.

dThe convention of a bullet indicates the fusion of  the two indicated domains  in *AroCI•AroD proteins of higher plants.

eAbbreviations:  PABA, 4-aminobenzoate; PR, phosphoribosyl.
