  1. aEvidence codes – TAS Traceable Author Statement (i.e., a direct report exists in the literature), IDA Inferred from Direct Assay, NAS Non-traceable Author Statement (i.e., not directly observed for the living, isolated sample, but based on a generally accepted property for the species, or anecdotal evidence). These evidence codes are from the Gene Ontology project [68]
