  1. For putative E. falcifomis RopKs the family categorization obtained searching the HMMs developed by Talevich et al. [49] is given (best HMM). The score against this HMM can be compared with the score against the general protein-kinase-like profile (PKL score) to distinguish RopKs from universal kinases (see also Figure 4). Finally orthologs from E. tenella and T. gondii are given. The E. tenella ortholog marked with * is not included in the RopKs described by Talevich et al. [48], therefore EfaB_PLUS_24117.g1969 is not counted as having a RopK ortholog. Rop18 (marked with ++) is not found in ortholog clusters. The E. falciformis gene, however, shows sequence similarity to Rop18-III from T. gondii (GI: 117574634).
