  1. 1. Residues that are different from that of the corresponding residue in the reference sequence are highlighted in bold.
  2. 2. Identity indicates the number (%) of residues in the homologous sequence that are identical to the corresponding residue in the reference sequence.
  3. 3. Totals indicate the number (%) of strains in which the reference sequence is found with an identity above or below the indicated threshold.
