Fig. 1

Distribution and conservation of VIPER and TATE among trypanosomatids. The tree was drawn based on several studies (see text). Branches are not drawn to scale. The presence of at least one potentially encoding copy of the element in the species is indicated as a dark green rectangle. The presence of only degenerate copies is represented by a light green rectangle. Species, where it was not possible to conclude on the conservation of the element, have a question mark, and XXXX represents the probable complete absence of the element
