Additional file 1:

Additional information of newly predicted selenoproteins. The following additional data are included within the additional file1. Gene structures of the newly identified selenoprotein genes of Ciona intestinalis, and comparison between the newly identified version and misannotated version of these genes are shown in Supplemental Figure S1 and S2. The secondary structures of the SECIS elements of Ciona intestinalis selenoprotein genes are shown in Supplemental Figure S3. Multiple alignments of all newly identified selenoproteins and their homologous sequences are shown in Supplemental Figure S4. Multiple alignments of all human selenoproteins predicted by the SelGenAmic-based method and their homologous sequences are shown in Supplemental Figure S5. Information on chromosome number and ORF position of these genes were also shown in Supplemental Figure S5. Gene structures of the two alternative splicing forms of DI2 predicted from the armadillo genome were shown in Supplemental Figure S6, along with their multiple alignments (Supplemental Figure S7) and secondary structure of SECIS elements (Supplemental Figure S8).
