  1. aEvidence code – IDA Inferred from direct assay, TAS Traceable author statement (i.e., a direct report exists in the literature), 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 [39]
