*The gene family names were inherited from the PeroxiBase [26] that contain fungal sequences.

**The genes encoding Duox family were exclusively found in the species belonging to the kingdom Metazoa and Proterospongia sp. ATCC 50818 which belongs to the order Choanoflagellida, a close relative to the animals [33].

***Only one gene belonging to the Rboh family was found in fungi (Spizellomyces punctatus) while others were found in Oomycetes.
