  1. All Xenopus ADHs supported by evidence at the protein, transcript or gene level, are included, together with their accession numbers and expression sites. A single ADH1A gene exists in X. tropicalis while two genes are found in X. laevis. In contrast, no X. laevis ADH2 sequence has been found to the date. Accession numbers are taken from UniProt or EMBL (all the EMBL sequences, in bold, are from this study). Expression sites were mostly obtained from UniGene (cluster numbers are provided), but also from GenBank (where indicated). For X. laevis, results of expression experiments from our group (in bold) and other sources, are also included. 1Partial sequence, probably another allele of this gene; 2Hoffmann et al.[22]; 3Partial sequence, containing frameshift mutations; n.a.: not available.
