1 Derived from information provided in the corresponding UniProt release; Complete indicates the complete prohormone is present in the SwissProt database, Fragment indicates a partial sequence in the SwissProt database, and TrEMBl indicates a complete sequence without experimental data is reported in the TrEMBL database.

2 Complete, Fragment and Not found denote if the prohormone gene was completely recovered, partially recovered or there were no matches from the cattle genome, respectively.

3 Denotes the resource supporting the presence of the prohormone sequence in the cattle genome: UniGene, DNA (nucleotide and EST sequences not present in UniGene), pseudogenes and unreported.

4 Not previously reported (predicted or empirically confirmed) in cattle.
