From: CUSP: an algorithm to distinguish structurally conserved and unconserved regions in protein domain alignments and its application in the study of large length variations

Figure 5

a Structurally conserved regions identified in the globin fold (in pink) by CUSP on independently derived alignments from PASS2 and CE (left and right respectively). b Dwarf and giant domains in the Ferritin superfamily ([1dvba1 (1–147)] and [1mtyd- (15–526)], left and right respectively) show a common conserved core of 4 helices (in brown) surrounding a central Fe atom. Additional lengths in methane monoxygenase hydroxylase, the giant domain, (in green) participate in domain interactions.
