Figure 2. Phylogenetic tree comparing the deduced amino acid sequence of the C. angulata elongase of very long-chain fatty acids with a series of protein sequences including representatives of the ELOVL subtypes from other organisms. A multiple sequence alignment was performed using ClustalW and a phylogenetic tree was made using the neighbor-joining method in MEGA 4.1 package. Numbers represent the frequencies with which the tree topology presented was replicated after 1000 bootstrap iterations
