Enolase phylogenic incongruence. When aligned, the enolase region corresponding to amino acids 73–118 of the Oryza sativa gene, exhibit two insertions (red boxes) that are only present in land plants, charophytes and alveolates. In alveolates, these insertions are consistent with a horizontal gene transfer. However, to date, evolutionary reconstructions based on enolase sequences did not allow any phylogenetic branch gathering for these clades [36].
