Sample text

Strands belonging to the four-stranded b-GF core are colored green, the additional strand found in the five-stranded assemblage is colored yellow, strands forming a conserved insert within the b-GF scaffold are colored magenta, and other strands specific to a certain lineage are colored gray and outlined with a broken line. The absolutely conserved core helix is colored orange and other helices specific to a certain lineage colored gray and outlined with a broken line. Topologies are grouped and labeled in a manner consistent with the structural classes described in the text, with members of the eukaryotic UB-like superfamily nested within other members of the five-stranded assemblage.

It is worth noting that despite the lack of experimental evidence, some of the standalone YukD versions could also be attached to target proteins given the conservation of small, C-terminal residues. Perhaps, as is in the case of the conjugated SAMPs and Urm1s, conjugation occurs in a condition-specific manner that has yet to be determined.

Burroughs et al. 2. The Post-LUCA Phase: The Prokaryotic Superkingdoms The emergence of the two prokaryotic superkingdoms, the archaea and bacteria, was marked by numerous superkingdom-specific innovations. Several of these innovations appear to have happened early in the history of the bacteria followed by multiple lateral transfers to the archaea. Likewise, innovations occurring in bacteria were also transferred to eukaryotes both during the primary endosymbiotic event and sporadically through later transfers.
