  • a Caenorhabditis elegans, Drosophila melanogaster, Mus musculus, or Homo sapiens.

  • b Arabidopsis thaliana.

  • c Based on the myosin component of the protein.

  • d Based on manual annotation, this predicted polypeptide spans contig 3.225 nucleotides 69201 to 72540 and encodes a 1,112-amino-acid polypeptide (in contrast to the 143-amino-acid prediction in the Neurospora database).

  • e Even though chs6p was used to identify NCU04511.1, when the latter was used as a query on the yeast database, bud7p was the closest match.
