The evolution of genes encoding for green fluorescent proteins: insights from cephalochordates (amphioxus)

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4911609
PMID: 27311567
DOI: 10.1038/srep28350

[…] a), the sea snail limpet Lottia gigantea (Mollusca) and the acorn worm Saccoglossus kowalevskii (Hemichordata) from EnsemblMetazoa ( (for S. purpuratus and L. gigantea) and Metazome v3.0 ( (for S. kowalevskii). GFP-encoding gene was screened by hmmsearch (option: -E 1e-4) for these proteomes. […]


Tentacle Transcriptome and Venom Proteome of the Pacific Sea Nettle, Chrysaora fuscescens (Cnidaria: Scyphozoa)

Calcareous sponge genomes reveal complex evolution of α carbonic anhydrases and two key biomineralization enzymes

BMC Evol Biol
PMCID: 4265532
PMID: 25421146
DOI: 10.1186/s12862-014-0230-z

[…] axa were obtained from GenBank [] or identified by BLAST searches against data from sequenced invertebrate genomes [,-] and transcriptomes [] from data of publicly available sources: Compagen [,] and Metazome v3.0 [] (Additional file ). In Hydra, we excluded some proteins, which had additional domains and only partial CA-domains. Sequences were aligned with MAFFT version 7 [] and sites for phyloge […]
