The percent nucleotide and amino acid identity of C. elegans orthologues was determined using ALIGN. % identity is derived from the ALIGN pairwise alignment. Mass is calculated from the amino acid sequence. *Identification of the FSH receptor orthologue as reported in [9]; percent identities for this receptor were derived from the total alignment of the orthologue and human FSHR.
