The multiple alignment of TKT, TKTL1 and TKTL2. The multiple alignment of human (P29401.3), mouse (P40142.1), Escherichia coli (P27302.5) and Saccharomyces cerevisiae (P23254.4) transketolase (TKT) sequences as well as human transketolase-like protein 1 (TKTL1) (P51854.2) and 2 (TKTL2) (Q9H0I9.1) sequences. The secondary structures visible in the human TKT crystal structure (PDB accession 4KXW) is shown aligned above the human TKT sequence. The α-helices, 310-helices and β-strands are indicated. Identical and conserved residues at aligned sequence positions are identified by red and yellow blocks, respectively. The alignment was calculated with T-coffee [33] and the alignment figure generated with ESPript [34]
