Additional file 1:

Final nucleotide and amino acid sequences for the BPI-Like genes, not already in the public sequence databases. The N-terminal domain of the two-domain (all but BSP30C, BSP30D and BASE) and the full length sequences of the single-domain sequences (BSP30C, BSP30D and BASE) were used in the Phylogenetic analyses
