Protein sequence alignment of residues 88–103 (Escherichia coli coordinates) for the flagellin genes. The range of residues required for TLR5 activation (Andersen-Nissen et al., 2005) are indicated by the top bracket. Sequences are organized by similarity within these residues. Species whose flagellin are reported (Andersen-Nissen et al., 2005) to be recognized (R) or unrecognized (UR) by TLR5 are noted. Based on the visualization of the alignment, flagellin genes predicted to be recognized or unrecognized by TLR5 are indicated; genes of ambiguous TLR5 recognition status are unmarked.
