A multiple alignment of the GOLD domain was constructed using T-Coffee  and realigning the sequences by parsing high-scoring pairs from PSI-BLAST search results. The PHD-secondary structure  is shown above the alignment, with E representing a β strand (upper-case letters indicate predictions with > 82% accuracy, and lower-case letters denote predictions with > 72% accuracy). A search with the lumenal region of Caenorhabditis elegans p24-family member K08E4.6 (region 20-191) recovers RALBP from Todarodes pacificus, the squid ortholog of SEC14L2 (E = 7 × 10-3, iteration 1). A reciprocal search with RALBP_Todarodes pacificus (region 189-343) recovers GCP60 (E = 2 × 10-10, iteration 1), FYCO1 (8 × 10-4, iteration 1), SPAC23H4.01c (10-3, iteration 2), KIAA0420 (10-3, iteration 2) and K08E4.6 (7 × 10-3, iteration 2). The 80% consensus shown below the alignment was derived using the following amino-acid classes: h, hydrophobic (ALICVMYFW, yellow shading); l, the aliphatic subset of the hydrophobic class (ALIVMC, yellow shading); a, aromatic (FHWY, yellow shading); s, small (ACDGNPSTV, green letters); u and p are the tiny subsets of the small class (u, GAS, green shading) and polar (p, CDEHKNQRST, blue letters). Y denotes a conserved tyrosine residue. The limits of the domains are indicated by the residue positions on each side. The numbers within the alignment indicate poorly conserved inserts that are not shown. The different families are shown on the right. A, p24 family; B, Osh3p family; C, CG9528 family (Sec14-like proteins with an amino-terminal PRELI/MSF1p' domain); D, Sec14-like proteins; E,GCP60 family; and F, FYCO1. The sequences are denoted by their gene name followed by the species abbreviation and GenBank Identifier. Ce, Caenorhabditis elegans; Dm, Drosophila melanogaster; Hs, Homo sapiens; Sc, Saccharomyces cerevisiae; Sp, Schizosaccharomyces pombe; Top, Todarodes pacificus.
