  1. The BLAST algorithm was used to find the best matches in the NCBI nucleotide database (BLASTn) and UniProt/SwissProt protein database (BLASTx). For each gene, the top two BLASTn matches are given along with the percent sequence similarity. Sequence identity values shown represent local similarity as reported by BLAST. Cg-AC only had one top BLASTn hit. The top BLASTx protein hit is also given. GenBank Accession Numbers are in parentheses next to the species name of the top hit.
