Domain expansion and contraction in LMA vs. HMA sponges. Innate immune- and symbiosis-related protein domains were selected from the functional annotation. a The number of times a domain occurs in each genome. Shown are domains found ≥ 1.5 times more in SC compared to XT, or vice versa. AQ is included for comparison. The domain occurrence is highly correlated in the LMA sponges (AQ and SC; Pearson correlation coefficient = 0.92). The numbers of genes containing the domains are shown in the bracket. b The co-occurrence of innate immune domains in sponges. Nodes represent domains, while the numbers above the edges indicate the number of proteins in which the two domains co-occur for each sponge (the color key is shown at the bottom-left). Each node size is proportional to the number of outgoing edges. Edges are shown only when the domain pairs were observed ≥ 5 times in ≥ 1 species
