Sequences of putative fructose-1,6-bisphospate aldolases (FBA) in five amitochondriate unicellular eukaryotes, the diplomonads Giardia intestinalis (published earlier) and Spironucleus barkhanus, the pelobiont Mastigamoeba balamuthi,the entamoebid Entamoeba histolytica, and the parabasalid Trichomonas vaginalis all belong to Class II of FBAs and are highly similar to each other (>48% amino acid identity). The five protist sequences, however, do not form a monophyletic group. Diplomonad FBAs… CONTINUE READING
