  • a The predicted CLV2 amino acid sequence was used in a BLAST analysis (Altschul et al., 1997) to identify fully sequenced homologous genes (partial clones and expressed sequence tags were not included).

  • b The number of predicted gene products in each category containing no charged residues (No charge), histidine (His), aspartic acid (Asp), and lysine (Lys) in their putative transmembrane domains.

  • c The first 10 residues from the predicted transmembrane domain were assessed to determine if the putative EPTMs were basic or acidic overall.
