Average percentage identity between local alignments of secreted salivary proteins from six Anophelesspecies. All secreted salivary protein sequences from each Anopheles species (An. gambiae, An. arabiensis, An. stephensi, An. funestus, An. albimanus and An. darlingi) matching at least one other salivary protein in another species at 40% identity threshold (q.v., Additional file 2) were recovered and blasted again each other. The percentage identity of the best match (lowest E-value) was recovered with the protein NCBInr accession number and normalized BLAST scores were calculated based on raw BLAST scores and raw self-BLAST scores. When a unique salivary protein from target species B matched several proteins in reference species A, only the best match (lowest E-value) was selected. Average normalized BLAST scores ± SD and percentage identities are indicated in bold and summarized on Figure 1C.
