a No significant similarity in blast search to published ycf68 regions anywhere in genome

b A complete copy of the motif is present but there are internal stops making it "non-functional"

c ycf68 motif occurs as ORF; Recognized as CDS in the genome annotation

d Published Eucalyptus genome map [18] includes ycf68, but ycf68 region includes internal stops
