Evolution of gram-positive bacteria

Hi,

I cloned and sequenced a protein from a gram-positive bacteria (streptomycete) and
much more homology to yeast, fungi and mammalians than to E.coli. So my question
is, what may be the reason for this? 

The protein is highly conserved from human down to yeast (about 80% identity),
but as fas as I know the split of eukaryotes and prokaryotes took earlier place
than the split gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.

Bye, Andreas
