Figure 2. Alanine scanning mutagenesis of the peripherin targeting sequence identifies V332 as the only residue essential for targeting.Panels A–I show confocal images of transgenic frog retinas expressing the YFP-xRhoCTδ5-xPer317–336 (green) variations containing single alanine substitutions of individual residues. (J) Multiple sequence alignment of peripherin targeting sequences from different species; residues with over 90% identity are highlighted yellow and the 100% conserved valine is highlighted orange. Abbreviations are: OS – outer segment, IS – inner segment, N – nuclei, ST – synaptic termini. Nuclei (blue) are stained with Hoechst. Scale bar 5 µm.
