  1. The list of top hits among Ciona genes in a BLASTP search against human disease related GPCRs. The list is based on an E-value cut-off of ≤1e-20 and further verification by phylogenetic analysis. The Ciona matches were checked for their alignment with the human proteins over the length of the TM region. Swiss-Prot identifiers are reported for the human GPCRs.
