CODEHOP PCR primers derived from the "KGV" sequence motif (A)(B) Sequence alignments across the "KGV" motif as described in the legend to Figure 3. (C) The consensus amino acid sequence from the "KGV" motif as determined by the CODEHOP algorithm is presented (in bold and boxed) and the other amino acids found at each position are aligned vertically above the consensus amino acid. The sequences of the coding strand and complementary strand corresponding to the "KGVDB" CODEHOP predicted by the CODEHOP software is indicated. The nucleotide sequences, relative positions and encoded amino acid sequences of the manually designed CODEHOP, "KG1", are also shown (see Table 1 for the exact nucleotide sequences of these anti-sense strand primers). The degeneracy of the primer pools is indicated in parentheses.
