The numbers indicate how many proteins were identified in each selenoprotein family by organism. Organisms are represented by abbreviations: Aq = Amphimedon queenslandica, Ta = Trichoplax adhaerens, Nv = Nematostella vectensis, Lg = Lottia gigantea, Ct = Capitella teleta, Bf = Branchiostoma floridae. The abbreviated name of each selenoprotein is shown in parentheses.
