Additional file 1:

Five domain groupings of Scavenger A genes from D. melanogaster (Dmel), A. gambiae (Agam), C. elegans and D. pulex (Dpul). Abbreviations of domains: chitin-binding domain = cbd, scavenger receptor = SCRC (labelled 5' to 3' as A, B or C within a gene copy), low-density lipoprotein = ldl. Vertical lines indicate homologous SCRC domains as shown in phylogenetic tree. Groups 1–4 are all SR-A1, while group 5 is SR-A2 (see text).

List of Daphnia pulex gene models. For each gene model entry we list the gene name (ID) and coding DNA sequence (SQ). Additionally, under the tag FT, we give the coordinates of the nucleotide sequence to the JGI Daphnia pulex genome sequence, version 060905, unless otherwise noted.
