  1. 1 Protein sequence identity/similarity calculated after exclusion of gapped regions. Values for the An. gambiae/Ae. aegypti comparisons are given in the rows corresponding to Aedes aegypti; these values are also representative of the identity/similarity between An. gambiae and Cx. quinquefasciatus. The identity/similarity between Ae. aegypti and Cx. quinquefasciatus proteins is given in the Cx. quinquefasciatus rows.
  2. 2 The Ensembl gene ID (abridged by omitting the species codes AGAP0, AAEL0, and CPIJ0 for An. gambiae, Ae. aegypti, and Cx. quinquefasciatus; respectively) is given for genes with complete (bold) or partially (italic) predicted sequence in the recent VectorBase gene builds (An. gambiae: AgamP3.4; Ae. aegypti: AaegL1.1; Cx. quinquefasciatus: CpipJ1.0_5); genes that do not match any gene predictions are marked as unannotated.
  3. 3 Several alternative transcription start sites identified.
  4. 4 nd – not determined
  5. 5 Data based on a portion of a gene sequence; see text for details.
