  1. Counts are conservative, i.e., they refer to the number of genes with a complete ORF only, not isoforms or partial genes found in each transcriptome (see Additional file 2: Tables S6 and S7 for gene, isoform and partial gene counts). Genes were considered complete when a full open reading frame was found (start and stop codons) and contained the canonical Pfam domains (see Methods). Shown are the Toll-like receptor (TLR), Nucleotide-binding and Leucine-rich Repeat containing gene family (NLR), Myeloid Differentiation primary response gene 88 (MyD88) and Nuclear Factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-κB) and Interleukin-1 receptor (IL-1R-like). ǂNo TLR in Aiptasia genome [27]. *NF-κB in Nematostella does not have ankyrin repeats [71]; here NF-κB was only considered complete if it contained the RHD and ankyrin repeats (see Methods). *Aiptasia also has only a RHD-IPT (no ankyrin repeats) containing NF-κB (AIPGENE8848 sp|P19838|NFKB1). †Partial genes found, see Additional file 2: Table S7
