A phylogenetic tree of the ADF/cofilin family. The groups and subgroups of plant ADF/cofilins are separated by dotted lines. An alignment of the complete sequences was made with Clustal W; this was used to derive a phylogenetic tree with Clustal W using bootstrapping (1000 reiterations) and the output tree was plotted using the Njplot program. The data were taken from the published literature, expressed sequence tag databases and genomic databases. Arabidopsis thaliana ADF1-ADF9 are named in accordance with Bowman et al., 2000 [4] with an additional sequence ADF10 from GenBank (AAF78408). The petunia (Petunia hybrida) and cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) ADF/cofilins are numbered in accordance with Mun et al., 2000 [3]. The alignment generated for this analysis and other information relating to this article and the ADF/cofilins generally is available from the authors' ADF/cofilin home page [76]. In order from top of the figure to the bottom, the sequences were derived from the following accession numbers (GB, GenBank [18]; SP, SwissProt [77]; GB; PIR, protein information resource [78]): Glycine max 1 (soya bean), BG725541; A. thaliana 3 (thale cress), GB AF360169, GBAF102821 and GB AAD09109; Solanum tuberosum (potato), GB BE340726; Lycopersicon esculentum 1 (tomato), GB BG791215; Glycine max 3, GBBE802250; G. max 4, GB BG882919; G. max 2, GB BG882937, GB BG882422 and GB BG882919; Medicago truncatula (barrel medic), GB AA660460 and GB AA660869; A. thaliana 2, GB U48939; Petunia hybrida 1(petunia), GB AAK72617 [3]; A. thaliana 4, GB AF102822; A. thaliana 1, GB AF102173; Gossypium hirsutum 4 (cotton), GB AI728908; G. hirsutum 1, GB AF731080; P. hybrida 2, GB AAK72616 [3]; Beta vulgaris (sugar beet), GB BF011219; Malus domestica (apple tree), GB AF179295; A. thaliana 10, GB AAF78408; A. thaliana 8 (incomplete) [4]; Zea mays 2 (maize), GB X97725 [7]; Z. mays 1, GBX80820 [7]; Lilium longifolium (trumpet lily), PIR S30935, GB Z14110 [6]; Lycopersicon esculentum 2, GB AW218268; A. thaliana 7[4]; Brassica napus (incomplete; rapeseed), PIR S30934 and GB Z14109 [6]; Pinus taeda 2 (Loblolly pine), GB AA556832; P. taeda 1, GB AW290013; A. thaliana 9 (incomplete) [4]; G. hirsutum 2, GB AI730337; G. max 5, GB BE211729; A. thaliana 5, AF360302, AF102825 and AF102823; Mesembryanthemum crystallinum 3 (ice plant or figmarigold), GB BE033507; Oryza sativa 2 (rice), GB AAK09235; G. max 6, GB BG726731; Elaeis guineensis (African oil palm), GB AF236068; A. thaliana 6 (incomplete) [4]; G. hirsutum 3, GB AI729046; M. crystallinum 4, GB BE033912; Oryza sativa 1, GB AAK38308; M. crystallinum 2, GBBE035020; M. crystallinum 1, GB GB035057; Suaeda salsa (seablite), GB AW990964; Z. mays 3, X97726 [7]; Triticum aestivum (wheat), GB U58278 [14]; Acanthamoeba castellanii (soil amoeba) actophorin, SP P37167 [16]; Toxoplasma gondii (coccidian parasite), U62146; Neospora caninum (apicomplexan), GB BG235118 and GB BG235281; Eimeria tenella 2 (coccidian parasite), GB AI756831; E. tenella 1 GB BG235538; D. discoideum (slime mould), SP P54706 [22]; Agaricus bisporus (cultivated mushroom), GB AW444327; Neurospora crassa (incomplete; fungus), GB T49327; Schizosaccharomcyes pombe (yeast) Cof1, GB D89939 and PIR T38120; Zygosaccharomyces rouxii (yeast), GB BAB18899; S. cerevisiae (yeast), SP Q03048 and D13230 [20,70]; Strongylocentrotus purpuratus (sea urchin), Contig 501 [79]; Danio rerio 2 (zebrafish), GB B017097; D. rerio 1, GB Fa96c03.Y1, GB Fa91d10.YL, GB Fb04b04.y1 and GB Fa96c03.x1; Xenopus laevis 2(South African clawed toad), SP P45593 [80]; X. laevis 1, GB U26270 [80]; Ictalurus punctatus (channel catfish), GB BE470088, GB BE469308 and GB BE468299; D. rerio 3, GB AW018661, GB AI658133 and GB AI794635; Gallus gallus (chicken) muscle cofilin, M55659 [81]; Mus musculus (house mouse) muscle Cof2, L29468 [8]; Homo sapiens (human) muscle cofilin, GB AF283513; Rattus norvegicus (rat) non-muscle cofilin, GB G509201; M. musculus non-muscle Cofilin, SP P18760; Sus scrofa (pig) non-muscle cofilin, GB M20866; H. sapiens non-muscle cofilin1, GB D00682; G. gallus ADF, GB J02912; S. scrofa ADF, GB J05290 [43]; H. sapiens ADF, PIR A54184 [47]; M. musculus ADF, NP062745; Sarcoptes scabiei (parasitic mite), GB BG817660; Manduca sexta (silkworm, insect), GB BF707432; Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) Twinstar, PIR A57569 [11,82]; Lumbricus rubellus (earthworm), GB BF422380; Schistosoma japonicum (trematode fluke causing schistosomiasis), GB AA140553; Echinococcus granulosus (cestode tapeworm of dogs), GB BI244320; Caenorhabditis elegans 1 (nematode), SP Q07750 [10]; C. elegans 2, SP Q07749 [10]; Cryptosporidium parvum (apicomplexan), GB AA224644; Asterias amurensis (starfish) depactin, SP P20690; Entamoeba histolytica (dysentery-causing amoeba), contig ENTFF06TR [83].
