The following additional data are included within the additional file. The genomic chromosome or scaffold from which the selenoprotein gene was identified in this paper is shown in Supplemental Table S1. Multiple alignments of all newly identified selenoproteins and their homologous sequences are shown in Supplemental Figure S2. Gene structures of the newly identified selenoprotein genes in marine invertebrates are shown in Supplemental Figure S1. The secondary structures and COVE scores of the SECIS elements of these selenoprotein genes are shown in Supplemental Figure S3. The DNA sequences and amino acid sequences of Oc.AphC.lile_a and b are shown in Supplemental Figure S4 and S5. The DNA sequence and amino acid sequence of Aq.3NSelP are shown in Supplemental Figure S6.
