Sequence alignment of the predicted amino acid sequences of 3D7 allelic types MSP-2 from P. falciaprum isolates from Myanmar. The central variable region of allelic types is compared to the reference 3D7 (GenBank accession number X53832). Identical residues are indicated by dots. Dashes represent gaps introduced to maximize the alignment. The family-specific region (E1-E3) and the two tandem repeats (R1 and R2) are indicated. Each repeat unit in R1 is underlined. The poly-threonine stretch is highlightened by shading. The total number of each allele is indicated.
