1 UniProt Evidence: “type of evidence that supports the existence of the protein”; Protein : complete protein sequence; Partial: incomplete protein sequence such as presence of a peptide; Transcript: “existence of a protein has not been strictly proven but there is expression data (such as existence of cDNAs, RT-PCR or Northern blots) that indicate the existence of a transcript.”; Predicted: Complete or partial sequence of the protein has been predicted; Not Found: no match found in the UniProt database.

2 Genome: prediction of the protein sequence from the genome assembly: complete denotes full sequence, fragment denotes incomplete prediction and Not Found denotes no match.

3 UniGene Present or Not Found denote whether the gene had any EST evidence or not, respectively.
