  • a Similarity searches were done with the the program blastp (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/BLAST/). Percent identity is defined as percentage of amino acids that are identical between two proteins. Percent similarity is defined as percentage of amino acids that are identical or conserved between two proteins. The expect value (E value) estimates the statistical significance of the match, specifying the number of matches with a given score that is expected in a search of a database of this size absolutely by chance.
