b. Dominette was the reference animal whose DNA was used by The Bovine Genome Sequencing and Analysis Consortium, [26]; D = domain, and they are described by their pattern type (a-d’) as well as presumed position within the molecule (Domain 1 to 11). + = all 11 domains present in assembled genome or corresponding cDNA obtained.

c. Only partial sequences were obtained due to gaps in the genome sequences.

d. A transcript corresponding to SRCR Domain 1 through the intracytoplasmic region were obtained but it coded for only six extracellular domains, thus it was smaller than the majority of other WC1 molecules [3,14].

e. While transcripts for the SRCR Domain 1 of the proposed genes were found, they were named WC1-nd1 and WC1-nd2 because their placement was “not determined” in the genome of Dominette.
