SMAT80 gives poor E-values for coccidian specific proteins in non-coccidian parasites. BLAST searches for coccidian-specific oocyst wall proteins of Cryptosporidium parvum were carried out against the hematozoans (non-coccidian) and coccidian apicomplexan parasites using BLOSUM62 and SMAT80 matrices. SMAT80 correctly gave poor E-values and/or bit scores for BLAST hits of these coccidian-specific proteins in hematozoans.
